Kilkenny band Beautiful Corruption are priming themselves for a special and celebratory night in Cleeres on Saturday the 16th of July.
The band are set to release their new single,"Orphic", and have gathered a host of Kilkenny acts to help them celebrate, with Feibhár and the Dublin band Brand New Dead Things set to act as support for the night.
Beautiful Corruption, a four piece band based in Thomastown, have been creating a stir wherever they go, with their roliking live shows highlight the talent all 4 members have in abundance. The band release this single off the back of their very successful EP "Snakes and Ladders" which was widely praised and lauded. It was nominated for EP of the year by Pure M Magazine and was played on many local and national radio stations.The band have been very busy of late as they have just recently concluded their Irish tour.
The band was formed in 2012 and quickly went through a number of changes. Within the first 3 year, the band had 4 different bassist, but the band has been firmly settled for the past year. The band have grown in stature and confidence with every gig and when the band members were disjointed going to college, you could hear the different influences of each member in the music and it gave the band the ability to bring their show on the road and to play in the Galway, Dublin and Cork.
'Guitar driven track'
The single"Orphic" is a guitar driven track, with a distortion based sound. Made up of layers of guitars from James Brown and Oisin Wolfe, it's the bass heavy Drumming of Simon Cooke that gives this song it's punch. With a purposeful and determined performance from Bassist Rory Cooper, it's clear that the band have dissected the sound of their previous EP and have taken a heavier approach. This is the most assured and impressive vocal performance from Oisin Wolfe yet, and it stands out as one of the major improvements the band have made. He seems to hold more menace, authority and control than previous recorded attempts and this bodes well for a very promising future.
Beautiful Corruption have bags of potential and an all-encompassing live show. They have said that this will be their last Kilkenny concert for a while, and this adds to the meaning of the gig. Cleeres will be host to a celebration of Kilkenny music and all for a band that are on the rise.
