Belfast four piece The Crossfire Hurricanes are driving their own tanked-up style of blues-infused Indie Rock & Roll, and they rarely take it out of fifth gear. Tearing through live performances, the band mix an on-stage presence of professionalism and spontaneity which exploded them onto the local music scene, and saw them gain immediate popularity through debut gigs in Belfast, Dublin, and London. Their recipe is a cocktail of cool confidence mixed with creative musical agility, and these ingredients manifest themselves in their music; a repertoire of punchy riffs dripping in psychedelic delay effects, and ignited with catchy choruses. This has resulted in plays on BBC Radio, festival bookings including support for The Kooks and The Coronas, and London gigs including the famous Indie venue ‘The Dublin Castle’ in Camden; where Blur, Amy Winehouse, and The Arctic Monkeys honed their craft. The online release of their debut single ‘The Deviant’ made waves throughout the UK and received air play on over 60 Independent radio stations nationwide; while a live performance of their subsequent single ‘Morning After Showdown’ was used in an advert for Northern Irish Pub Of The Year, 'The Goat's Toe'. Whether playing in sweaty clubs or festival tents The Crossfire Hurricanes have gained a reputation as a fearsome live act. So if you walk past a music venue and you hear raw attitude amplified in a storm of riffs, drum rolls, and punchy vocals… then you know The Crossfire Hurricanes are in town… and they’ll charm you like a new belief.
The Holy Innocents
THE HOLY INNOCENTS – FORTUNE “The pilgrimage that’s lead to The Holy Innocents songs has been of the long miles and bloody feet variety. For anyone who hasn’t met them yet rest assured The Holy Innocents are top, top company when the going is less than great.” Colin Carberry, Hot Press Small-town visionaries finding inspiration in distant lands is nothing new. Teenage Fan club turned from the rain of Scotland’s Bellshill to the sun of Big Star and The Byrds’ California. America has been an inspirational magnet for generations of musicians and journeys through America provide the truth and character of those songs.
