WARSAW RADIO have released their debut album, Midnight Broadcast, through Seventh Dial Records, and tonight, the Limerick band play upstairs at the Róisín Dubh.
A taste for the album has been provided by the recent single, 'Ms Monroe'. The song, and it's accompanying video, takes inspiration from the relationship between Marilyn Monroe, and the writer Arthur Miller. Its lyrics imagine Monroe giving advice on relationships after the break down of her relationship with Miller when she were filming what would be her last film, The Misfits, in Reno, Nevada.
The band is centred around Brighton born Nikki Bates (violin/vocals ) and Limerick born Brían McNamara (vocals/guitar ). The line up is completed by Laurence Bridge (bass ), Paul Lennox (drums ), and Edd Mann (lead guitar ). Chris Hawkins of BBC 6 Music has described them as "one of those bands that you discover and you wish you'd known them longer".
Doors for the Róisín gig are 8pm. Support is from Derek Ellard and Emma Langford. Admission is €8.
