When you search for Conor Heafey’s page on Facebook, it pops up with “Rainy-day easy listening songs”, which I think describes his music PERFECTLY.
The Game is the title track from his recently released E.P and I’ll start off by saying that I think it’s Fabulous! (So fabulous, it needed a capital F!).
I think what I like most about the track that it’s so simple, Now, please don’t think that I mean it’s boring, far from it! What I mean is that there’s no over-driven guitars, no erratic solos, no trying to decipher what is being sung. However, it is INCREDIBLY catchy and his voice has a sort of gruffness to it, which sounds rather lovely. That mixed, with a great bassline and guitar, that slowly fade away as the track ends, makes a wonderful song.

You can find the WHOLE E.P on the following sites:
Spotify // Apple Music // iTunes // Bandcamp // Soundcloud
P.S. Sorry for all the caps, I felt they were needed + I got excited.

Ooooh-la-la! Some new music for my ears! Brilliant!
Within the first few seconds of pressing play, I was in love with song. I tend to establish my liking for a song in that period. So we’re already off to a good start, well done guys! It’s a funky and fresh sound, with slightly raw and rough vocals layered over. I can definitely imagine dancing to this live, I’m a terrible dancer, but for these guys I’d do it! The band sound so tight and clear, it’s obvious they have it together.
I may be slightly weird, but when I listen to a song, I try to imagine a video to it. For instance a road trip or a night out etc. If I can’t see a video, I tend to like it. I like being able to imagine for myself what the song might bring up a picture of. I can totally see a video for this song, something with a beach, and a dinosaur outfit. Possibly… let me know if you need any extras guys! I do a mean T-Rex impression!
The single is out NOW and you can find it on all the following sites. Over and out!
