Cry Monster Cry
Influenced by Bob Dylan, The Everly Brothers, Van Morrison, Ray Charles and Simon and Garfunkel. brothers Richie and Jamie Martin have recently recorded their debut album ‘Rhythm of Dawn’. A deep interest in the story telling traditions of Ireland is clearly present in the Martin brother’s songs. They use mythology and fables in some songs as they write about love, life, death, dreams, hopes and fears.
“Rhythm Of Dawn” is an album of transition, both artistically and thematically. The cyclical theme of the record marks the journey from night to day. Birds feature as a running theme throughout, stitched like a seam into the fabric of the record. There is an apparent tension between beautiful melodic harmonies and heavier darker undertones present in the lyrics and sounds that make up the work.
The album was recorded at Studio 2, Malahide with established collaborator Keith Lawless (The Fallen EP) and was mixed by Abbey Road veteran engineer Guy Massey (The Beatles, Ed Sheeran, Manic Street Preachers).
The brothers also took time to experiment with different sounds. Traditional folk instruments such as banjos, mandolins and acoustic guitars meet swirling subtle synthesizers, punchy electric guitars, hypnotic African percussion and chamber orchestras to create a feeling of a timeless journey through night and day.
In October they played their biggest headline show to date at The Button Factory, Dublin. They have also appeared on The Imelda May Show on RTE. Their debut album "Rhythm of Dawn" has received amazing reviews in Ireland so far including RTE Radio One's album of the week and Today FM's track of the week.FACEBOOK: https://www.
