From Spitting Image, due June 16 on Virgin/EMI/UMG.
These Irish kids had a song called “What a Shame” back in 2013 that I really loved. It was a cautionary tale of a young band who got manipulated by their record company into making all kinds of bad decisions to try to sell more albums.
This new one is a little less garage rock and a little more power pop new wave. Still good though!
Here’s that song that originally turned me on to them.
