New Music: Jericho

I do so love finding new Irish bands, so long as it’s not at the bottom of my bed at 3am, or in my welly on the third morning of Electric Picnic (could happen, John found a spider in his).

And this new Irish band is something special. Jericho are a Cork five-piece funk-piece who draw inspiration from the likes of Stevie Wonder, Prince, and Earth, Wind and Fire. Not your usual local folksters, then.

Frontman Darragh sounds like classic Michael Jackson after a wallop of fifteen unsugared coffees; smooth but gutsy, with a cheekiness that’s just the right side of legal. Jericho offer a slick take on the sexier end of soul, as much for fans of Friendly Fires than James Brown. The gang have just released the EP “Tantra”, and it’s available for free download here. Go on, oil up your hips for a wiggling and give it a lash.

About the Author

That cranky young wan from award-winning blog, Arse End Of Ireland, Lisa’s also noted for her dedication to cobbling together unrelated imprecations to make new and bemusing insults, mostly because she’s not eloquent enough to otherwise explain her deep-seated terror of genre fiction and Fianna Fail. In 2006, The Irish Times called her “… the most talented writer at work in Ireland today”, and her mam still can’t understand why this is better than being the new Marian Keyes. Which it totally is.
