COME ON LIVE LONG
Come On Live Long are a five-piece from Dublin, and despite only forming late last year there's already much to admire in their debut EP - ComeOnLiveLong. Come On Live Long formed in late 2010. Having met through mutual friends, the band recorded their debut EP over a winter weekend in the West of Ireland just weeks after their inception. The result is the free to download Come On Live Long EP which can be downloaded via Bandcamp. By combining the use of samplers, synths, ukeleles, guitars, keys and percussion Come On Live Long blend a common love for all things electronic with their folk roots to attain a sound that is both energetic and melodic with synth-led riffs building and bursting beautifully alongside a memorable refrain. Impressive stuff.
9pm till late
