In recent years we have seen a steady rise in the number of bands coming from the Armagh area that are making the local scene talk. Most notably the highly infectious Hunkpapa. Now a new band has stepped up to the plate.
Enter Brother Vice. A four piece indie rock band from Armagh who have just released their debut single ‘Ultraviolet’. Recorded in the rural surroundings of Antrim at Manor Park Studio with Neal Calderwood, the band have produced an infectious track that will hold your attention.
Speaking to the band, they noted that they have been influenced by a large mix of rock music from the stadium anthems of the Foo Fighters to the indie disco hits of Catfish and the Bottlemen and this comes across clearly in their debut single.
‘Ultraviolet’ is based on a night out experience, seeing a former partner out with someone else and the realisation of things being over and knowing it’s time to move on. Listening to the track it takes you back to the days of early 2010’s Irish indie music from the likes of The Script and Kodaline with its light sound and charm however mixed with influences of bands that provide loud rousing choruses that you just want to belt out. It is definitely a fresh sound to emanate from the scene in recent years.
