New Music: The Crayon Set
It’s been desribed as “indie-folk-pop” – it’s energetic, catchy, lots of harmonies, with lots going on (strings, brass etc). It was produced by Nick Brine (The Beta Band, Super Furry Animals). You can download the EP for free – details below. We think it’s good [we really do Rob !] – and we at Culch.ie hope you enjoy the songs too!
The Crayon Set are a music collective based in Dublin, Ireland and they play an upbeat, hook-filled mix of alternative indie pop/rock with some elements of folk and chamber also thrown in. They use a wide variety of instruments including oboe, double bass, wurlitzer, violin, cavaquinho, trumpet and flute and specialise in multi-layered harmonies.
They have just recorded their debut album in Leeders Farm Studios which was co-produced with Nick Brine (The Beta Band, Ash, Super Furry Animals) and Teenage Fanclub’s Raymond McGinley guests on guitar. The album was mixed in Leeders Farm and Rockfield Studios.
The EP has been designed as a free introduction to the band – free to download at www.soundcloud.com/thecrayonset and the debut album is recorded and is scheduled for release in late 2011 / early 2012.
