Laois indie band release debut single ahead of first ever album

A Laois indie band have released their debut single ahead of their first ever album which is due out later this year.

‘Rabbit Hole’ is the name of the song which is by the Portlaoise based The Street Parade.

The band consists of four men – Brian O’Mahoney (Vocals/Guitars/Keys), Cormac Bracken (Guitars/Synths), Niall Harney (Bass) and Paul Flynn (Drums/Percussion).

The lads describe their new song as ‘a dark disco epic tune that has a fresh, positive modern sound.

‘Jangling guitars surrounds the pulsing synth and bass lines which are all nailed solid by an infectious drum groove’.

Recorded at Golden Egg Studios, Portlaoise, lead singer Brian O’Mahoney is delighted with how the song has turned out.

He explained how the new music was due to be released last year only for the pandemic to strike.

He said: “We decided in January to start writing some tunes and had the guts of the album fleshed out by March and then lockdown hit.

“We fine-tuned our ideas and worked out the nitty gritty of the songs through emails etc.

“In a way it probably focussed us a bit more on the end result.”

The Street Parade debut single ‘Rabbit Hole’ is out now and available to buy now.
