Kill/Boston, County Kildare
Music hits you in one of three places - the head, the hips or the heart. The sound of Bostonian/Dublin quartet Midatlantic hits you square on in all three.
Midatlantic is the musical re-incarnation of Boston/Dublin band The Bleedin Bleedins. The quartet, known for delivering jaggedly amped melodies with anthemic twists and turns.
Singer Mike Coen and guitarist Barry Kelly from Kildare go back as far as the year 2000 and formed the power trio, The Bleedin Bleedins with drummer/producer, Dave Franz in 2004. They have toured extensively in the US and Europe and shared stages with The Strokes, The Frames, BellX1 and Fountains of Wayne among others.
The band has recently expanded to a 5-piece forging a sound that has evolved into something much, much bigger. The quality of the song is always at the heart of what Midatlantic creates with songs that thread a broad line from the visceral to the caressing.
The band released their second full-length album “The Longest Silence” in September 2008 in the United States and recently their song “Darkest Day” was featured on prime time TV show “Without a Trace”.
Midatlantic will make you think, make you dance and ultimately make you want more.
