Once Like A Spark Review - Teletext

"What they offer is dense intelligent rock that veers deftly between emo, mellow Manics and riff-happy bounce"

Currently undergoing a 52 date tour which doesn't end until December 9th and after shows with Hundred Reasons and Ash it's surprising the Irish rockers aren't yet more of an overground cult. It's not as if they're self deluded by going on and on. What they offer is dense intelligent rock that veers deftly between emo ("Brave Gravity"), mellow Manics ("Writing The Ways Down") and riff-happy bounce ("Conventional Thought"). See them play up the road, then delve into a smart LP worth a million of jet.
