Circuit Sweet Introducing

Croupier

December 13, 2010

I am a big follower, fan, music fanatic of such rad bands as Enemies, The Redneck Manifesto and Adebisi Shank to name a few.
Notice any similarities? They all hail from Ireland and the above said bands are all part of the Richter Collective. A label you need to familiarize yourself with.
Having said that today I stumbled upon another Irish band, not signed to this label (yet, but who knows) who  draw many influences from those bands that I dig.
Croupier are a five-piece from Co. Wicklow Consisting of  Charlie Mooney- guitar/vocals, Harry Burton -keyboard/piano/vocals, Niall O’Kelly-drums, Oisín Murphy- vocals/guitar and Rob Reid slapping the bass.
Incorporating broad influences, from Talk Talk to The Redneck Manifesto to Liars, into a collaborative musical effort that defies basic categorisation. This is energetic, melodic, purposeful music that refuses to exist within a vacuum.
You can download their debut EP “We, the System” for free here-
This band are definitely ones to watch, I can see next year being very productive for the guys.
