Come On Live Long
Dublin, County Dublin
Come On Live Long formed in 2011 and shortly after recorded two E.P's in quick succession. The E.P's were met with critical acclaim and the band had their song 'Waiting' featured on Oakley’s Tour De France campaign and the track 'Elephants and Time' featured on RTE's Against The Head. In 2013 the band recorded their debut album Everything Fall; a collection of fast-paced, groove-laden alternative rock sitting side by side with loud atmospherics and slow burning electronics. Everything Fall was created using an array of analogue synthesizers, effects units, and sampled material all performed live in studio.
When performing, the band use an assortment of acoustic, electric and sampled instruments to create a sound that has been described as “widescreen, with superb electronic swagger".
They have played on stages at Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and Castlepalooza and last year embarked on a tour of Canada where they played Toronto's acclaimed CMW festival.
Their most recent single 'Speak Up' is available on itunes now.
