Four people from Dublin Ireland with guitars, voices & drums. Is that a bio?
Sure, they could put funny clothes on, pose on bicycles or hold fruit in front of their faces for the camera, but that’s not from where they come. The band’s self released and self produced work of 2007, Travel Light, found them hitting stride with 4 of 5 stars from Hot Press in their native Dublin. They then sold out the Bowery Ballroom and played to a packed house at Toronto’s 2008 North By Northeast Music and Film Festival. Now they turn it up with a return to form: guitars and voices all over the place. STAND took up residency in a Buffalo NY studio for ten days and emerged with as many songs. Two weeks later, L.A based mix-master extraordinaire Mark Needham put his touch to it. “I’m a huge fan of these guys,” Needham said. “Their music really stands out to me as a breath of fresh air in what is a very cluttered field right now.”
.When they convene, a very real rock band rolls.
