Moscow Metro, a band with strong Tipperary links, are due to release their EP ‘Spirit of A City’ on April 11th in the Academy, Dublin.
Recorded between Grove Studios, Exchequer Studios and Grouse Lodge and co-produced by the band, Owen Geaney and Rob Kirwin (Glasvegas, The Horrors).
Meeting through mutual friends, the quartet’s early rehearsals took place in a storage warehouse; a ten foot by ten foot metal box that shook with sound vibrations when they rehearsed, leading to the inspiration for the name ‘Moscow Metro’.
Described as post punk revival/shoe gaze, Moscow Metro take inspiration from every aspect of life including films, writers, art; the band’s influences are diverse, from The National to Blade Runner, Walt Whitman to The Cure.
Having played festivals including Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and Liss Ard in Cork to name a few, Moscow Metro have also earned their stripes on the live performance scene supporting some of the best Irish and international acts such as The Futureheads, The Minutes, The Funeral Suits, Dry the River and Jape.
This year will see Moscow Metro touring Ireland and Germany, with the possibility of further European dates and the promise of more releases.
The band comprises Sean Corcoran (vocals, bass, guitars & keyboards), Barry McNulty (vocals & guitar), Dylan Casey (drums, percussion & keyboards), Alan Holmes (vocals, keyboards & samplers).
