Catch – The Elation (if you can)

On the back of Clickbait reaching #3 in the Irish Indie Charts this week The Elation have released another toe tapping ready made for summer single.

Catch, produced and recorded with multi-platinum selling London producer Andy Whitmore, reflects the bands classic pop sensibilities. Combining the bands signature floor filling blend of funk guitar, rock steady drum beats and electrifying synth hits, Catch is three minutes of pure pop pleasure. Lyrically, the bands vocalist (Chris Cansdale) and guitarist (Billy Whelan) co wrote the idea for’ Catch’. Billy had the idea for the verses and chorus and Chris took the pre chorus’. The Co Writers took different approaches to the relationship song and merged them together.

The EP Clickbait features 5 songs including the single XO which received lots of airplay and great reviews. The EP is available to buy download or stream now on CD and Downloads from www.top6.ie/theelation .

Polished and peppy with just enough of a touch of indie rock to feel familiar” – A Journal of Musical Things

A Fun pop rock tune” – IndependentClauses.com

Patrick Bergin unveils his Tipperary Waltz

Fresh after his Eastenders role, Patrick Bergin has announced details of his next release, a double a-side to follow up on his recently released debut.

“If you ever see Jesus again” and “Tipperary Waltz” will be released on May 18th via Avalon Records. Tipperary Waltz is a song very personal to Patrick, his father Paddy heard him perform “It’s a long way to Tipperary” and said it was a recruiting song for the British army and wanted him to write something that in time could replace it in peoples mind. it’s set around World War 1 where Patrick’s fathers uncle had fought in the Somme and came back a shocked and damaged man. “Uncle Hugh” appears in the artwork of the single.

 

A line in the song “the ghosts of the men he shot still haunted him” was a reference to Tipperary freedom fighter Dan Breen who had told Patrick’s father about his experiences.

 

“Tipperary Waltz” is paired with “If you ever see Jesus again” and is available to stream and download from smarturl.it/patrickbergin
