Single News: Lines Drawing Circle - Thebes

Lines Drswing Circles

I'm a big fan of promoting upcoming Irish bands, and one band which could be massive are the splendidly-named Lines Drawing Circles.

Their debut single 'Thebes' will be released independently on Friday, February 6th 2009. It was Produced and Mixed by Gareth Mannix at Sun Studios, Dublin.

I've gotten my hands on the tune, and I must say it's pret-tay good for a first release. Look out for it.

Download: The War on Drugs - Taking the Farm

When Craig Finn of Hold Steady fame makes a comment like "I still haven't seen this band live... but they made an amazing record that I was obsessed with for most of the year", and asks them to support their upcoming US tour, you take note. I had to see/hear for myself, and like Craig, I love what I'm hearing.

They come to Europe next year, no news of an Irish date yet, but here's hoping. There's no UK dates set either, so I'd say they'll be announced together.
