AFTER TAKING the Irish indie-rock scene by storm with their debut release 'Mental Health', Galway's Slyrydes are back with new single 'Point Of View', and a show in the Róisín Dubh this month.
Slyrydes lead singer and guitarist, Mark Raftery, says 'Point Of View' "is about a break-up where the ex is still hanging around with your group of friends and you're sort of frustrated about the entire thing, including the relationship, and the things you said when you were drunk".
The band - Raftery, Mark Comer (lead guitar ), Fuz Reilly (bass ), Paul Clarke (drums ) - fuse punk and new wave influences with social commentary. Their music has been called "Urgent. Brilliant" by Paul McLoone of Today FM and The Undertones; in January, Nialler9 placed them on his list of the Top 8 emerging Irish bands; while The Thin Air called Slyrydes "a band we’re sure are destined for big things in 2019 and beyond".
Slyrdes play the Róisín Dubh with Stefan Murphy, The Athletes Of Soul and Soft On Crime on Wednesday May 22 at 8pm. Admission is €7. See www.roisindubh.net
