Constant Supply - Crystal

Single review by KevW

This County Donegal pairing have been floating around for a couple of years, using their distance from the centres of major music scenes to their advantage and developing a style that's not directly influenced by other movements going on around them. Using guitar, bass, vocals and a drum machine, Constant Supply released their first EP, 'Alleviate' at the beginning of last summer, something which led to more gigs and more press and radio coverage, all helping to get the ball rolling. The time since then has been spent putting together their debut album 'The Coast Ain't Clear', which is due for release sometime soon, although an exact date hasn't been given just yet.

The first cut to be unveiled from these sessions, which were recorded with Villagers man Tommy McLaughlin, is new single 'Crystal', a track made of dark textures and menacing undertones. It's a shadowy little tune and you wouldn't trust it as far as you could throw it. According to early reports the album will follow in a similar vein and names such as Radiohead, Pavement and Elliot Smith have been mentioned as references. So we can expect a brooding record that's not exactly full of the joys of spring, but one that may well go some way to establishing this underground duo even more.
