Review By Bobby Green
The new EP from Dublin’s TabliodTV “First Night Last Night” is grabbing people’s attention right now and is the must have EP in everyone’s collection. Yeah, you too can be one of the cool ones to say, ‘I was into them before they were signed’ Imagine Belle and Sebastian had double dropped with The Pooh Sticks and made a love child and then you’ll be close to understanding the beauty of what this 5 piece sound like.
The songs are laced with so much charm and personality, something a lot of bands miss nowadays because they’re too busy trying to write bloody anthems. TabloidTv met in school but didn’t play together until they started college. They recently released their well-received debut EP ‘Mixed Messages’ which was recorded and mixed by Francesco Gatti, who previously worked with All Tvvins. Made up of Ruairi Higgins (vocals), Senan Dobey (guitar, piano trumpet), Ultan Murray (Drums), Ian Rankin (Rhythm guitar) and Moninne Murray (vocal and bass guitar). Their influences include Vampire Weekend, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Smiths and Raglans.
TablioidTV aren’t a band you just like, they’re a band you’ll fall instantly in love with. They’re a band you play to your friends to impress them because there’s no way they know anything as cool. They’re just about to release their 2nd EP “First Night Last Night” on June 22nd and in the lead up just released the smashing track “Something New”
They will have their EP launch in Bello Bar June 16th.
