Video of the Day: The Thrills – Big Sur

Posted by falconi5 on January 10, 2017

A sorely missed band from Ireland, The Thrills are a hip, sun-shiney mix of The Beach Boys meets Big Star. “Big Sur” is a tune from the So Much for the City album, a desert island worthy record. Search this one out.  From the opener “Santa Cruz” to “Till the Tide Creeps In” the song that ends the set, you will be splashed with sun-kissed beach vibes. Guitar player and Co-founder Daniel Ryan has been busy managing The Little Green Cars, a spectacular band in their own right.

Video of the Day: Coldplay/Viola Beach – Boys That Sing

Posted by falconi5 on September 10, 2016

violaThis year the U.K. Band Viola Beach released their debut self-titled album, a smart intoxicating blend of British Pop Rock that falls somewhere between Oasis and Teenage Fanclub.  Released on their label, the record featuring the singles “Swings and Waterslides” and “Boys that Sing,” was set to be a next level album that vault the boys from Warrington into the big time.

Unfortunately, and tragically, all of the band members along with their manager were killed when the car they were all riding in crashed into a canal as they were on their way to an opening spot for The Blossoms after having played Sweden’s  Where’s the Music? festival, their first gig outside of the U.K.. Their album, released 4 months after the accident, reached number one on the British charts.

In the middle of their recent Glastonbury set instead of playing their usual cover of David Bowie’s “Hero’s” Coldplay paid tribute to Viola Beach showing videos of the band in the background while they played “Boys that Sing.”
