Oh YouTube, how many times more must I thank you for the lovely tunes you bring my way?
Funeral Suits – All Those Friendly People
Sometimes, wearing weird-ass (yet still somehow cool) animal masks can be rewarding – indeed, the masks were the only things that caught my attention when I saw the link to the music video. The music, however, that’s what I stayed for. I didn’t really have a choice – it was hypnotizing.
Funeral Suits is an Irish alternative rock band consisting of Brian James, Mik McKeogh, Greg McCarthy and Dar Grant. The band formed themselves in 2008, but only released their debut single ‘Colour Fade’ sometime in 2011 and with their debut album following thereafter, in June of 2012. The album itself was produced by Stephen Smith – perhaps better known for his work with The Smiths and Blur.
According to their homepage, their “shared love of epic, distorted guitars, blistering harmonius pop, art rock and
electronica [has] led to the band spending the best part of two years holed up in a disused office space in deepest North County Dublin, writing, rehearsing and at times venturing out to play as special guests for Franz Ferdinand, Passion Pit, The Maccabees, Local Natives amongst others.”
Not bad, not bad at all.
All Those Friendly People is the fifth track on their debut Lily Of The Valley.
