I have to say it right at the start for those of you who skim these reviews. This album, “9Lies” kicks ass. Simply put. The Belfast, Ireland outfit has found their niche and sound with this outing. Everything is in it’s place. Hooks. Monstrous beat. Melody. It’s all here. Listen to the previews and hear for yourself because those are not nine lies but ten awesome truths that spit out the next generation of indie with such a fervor that this album doesn’t beg your attention, it demands it. My personal favs are tracks one through five but don’t listen to me here because the last have takes the album in a new direction of equal awesomeness!
these guys deserve more than the attention they’re getting now so check them out! “9Lies” is out now on most major online outlets with the buy links below.

Davey Kernohan said “It’s been a long time coming. We have had stacks of EPs and singles as you know, but this is our first actual album since Behind It All and we are super excited. It’s an eclectic collection of tunes with themes I couldn’t even have dreamt of writing about or seeing if it hadn’t been for the past few years.”
