“The Riot Tapes” are a six piece alternative rock band mainly based in Dublin, Ireland.
They’re currently gigging at the moment and I advise you to head along to at least one of their sets because their sound is truly unique and refreshing.
Here’s a mini Gig Guide:
Tonight, (April 29th) they’re playing a set upstairs in “Whelans” with “Low Sea” and “Sacred Animals” .
Tomorrow night, they’re playing an acoustic rock set in “The Workman’s Club” (and in my opinion, from listening to their material, they’re an act for all new bands to follow).
On May 5th, they play as part of A “Guided By Voices” Tribute night also in “The Workman’s Club”.
They released their debut single “Photograph” on March 23rd and trust me when I say, it’s a corker!
Elaine’s fresh and sultry vocals combined with the band’s unique, upbeat composing style makes me feel that they should be slotted into the major festivals this summer! This is definitely my summer track!!
The single is currently available to download on iTunes for €0.99.
You can listen to “Photograph” and the band’s other material on Myspace and SoundCloud for free. The links are below.
You can also “follow” them on Twitter and “Like” them on Facebook which are convenient ways to keep up to date with what the band has in store for themselves in the near future.
“Photograph” is out now on “Rags To Rags” records.
My Rating for “Photograph”: Listen-ability : 5/5 Lyrics : 5/5
