MAYO band Train Room, based in Balla, have released debut single 'Horizons' today.
Now available on iTunes, 'Horizons' is the first track on the upcoming EP Delicate Bones, which is due to be released next month.
The band consists of two members former school friends from the '90s - Joe Monaghan and Catherine Maguire - after a chance meeting last summer saw them spawn ideas of collaborating as both of them were spending the summer in Mayo.
Joe said that with similar musical influences - such as The Shins, Cream, Neil Young, The Frank & Walters, The La's, and Smashing Pumpkins - they quickly formed a good chemistry after a few jams.
As for the single 'Horizons', Joe said it was tracked in his own 'makeshift studio' in Balla and was written, arranged and produced by himself.
“It has a folky feel with a modern twist, and is lyrically inspired by escapism and society's attitude to certain social stigmas,” he added.
A video to accompany the single (see below) was filmed by Dermot Heaney (www.ditchfilm.net), a new Belcarra-based film company.
