‘’One Man Town’ allows the audience to hear impassioned melodic vocals alongside a very authentic kind of blues\Modern guitar, effectually showcases the band’s aptitude to invoke a melancholy atmosphere without resorting to unnecessary layering and over the top production. ‘’
Derry Live List: ‘’A fantastic debut release, the track’s use every ounce of Maree’s powerful voice which is complemented by strong catchy riffs resulting in a beautiful big mash of Blues, Rock and Folk. Type of Band you know would grab the audience by the mojitos when performing live. Since releasing their debut self-titled E.P in August, the local band has built a reputation for their high-energy performances. Their creative take on the first single and music video ‘Cutthroat Desire’ has seen the video hit over 12,000 views on YouTube since its release in September.

Gigging NI :
The Longest Truth, single by Derry/Donegal One Man Town is down and dirty blues rock with a hint of 70’s metal.Those first few guitar licks open the door for that voice to blast into the room. Metallic notes zing throughout while percussion does its bit to rattle your bones.Not quite a ballad, nor a lament, but rather a deep, dark contemplation executed through lyric and vocal delivery.This track is haunting, almost eerie, yet altogether corporeal.Give it a listen. Let it rattle around in your head for a bit. Then crank it up and do it again. - Noelle Ellis
