Review by Bobby Green.
‘Sanguine Lane’ is the superb new single from Donegal band Constant Supply. The track is lifted from their upcoming third album ‘Isn’t Life Great’. The track is accompanied by an amazingly witty 8-bit styled adventure video made by Eugene McGinty. ‘Sanguine Lane’ will be released on June 22nd (spotify, apple music, bandcamp, etc) through What? Exactly.
Constant Supply are an alternative rock/pop band from Donegal, Ireland, consisting of James Gillen(Vocals, Guitar), Conal Sweeney(Bass, Piano), Eoin Gildea(Guitar, Synth) and Justin McDaid(Drums). Together they create melodic compositions, driven along through light and dark alleyways by pulsing drums. They released their debut album ‘The Coast Ain’t Clear’ in 2013 and their sophomore album ‘Ex Nihilo’ in 2015. Dan Hegarty made both albums ‘Album of the Week’ on his 2FM radio show. They secured a slot on the Oxjam stage at Electric Picnic 2016 after being one of ten finalists in 2FM’S Play the Picnic competition. Constant Supply will release their third album ‘Isn’t Life Great’ in September 2018, which was once again co-produced and recorded by Tommy McLaughlin (Villagers, Soak)
It is a slice of the one of the finest Alternative rock / pop offerings you’re likely to hear this year, its driving rhythm isn’t a million miles away from the Pixies in their prime but to make any comparisons here would be pure folly, their sound is very much theirs. And this is so refreshing on todays scene. The alternative music scene in Ireland has never been so vibrant and I believe Constant Supply have what it takes to stand out in an ever expanding arena we as music lovers are lucky to be experiencing right now.
