Self-titled album from Irvine: a real treat

Coming across like a stepchild of Muse and old school (i.e. good) U2, Irvine are a South African band who are already making waves back home.

However, a new challenge awaits having moved to London, and it’s easy to see that challenge having a successful outcome based on the evidence of this debut album.

The single above is an excellent example of their approach, going full pelt at their rock style with the glee of a child who is running too fast for their own legs. It rubs off on you as a listener, carrying youth through the whole album until it’s over all too soon. But you can always listen again.
