The Dublin punksters' have so far released a clutch of speed-fuelled tunes which have excited and delighted...debut album Dogrel does NOT disappoint and arrives as one of the most hotly anticipated releases of early 2019.
Raw and direct, the band deal in honest emotions in trying times. Big, The Lotts (reminiscent of Joy Division) and Boys in the Better Land are all belters. The lyrical concerns may be everyday, but they are poetic and heartfelt. Liberty Belle and Dublin City Sky are two other highlights here and the album rattles past in a flash.
Given time it will be interesting to see how the band develops-but for now this is job most certainly done and a perfect debut for 2019...
