Ten Past Seven
Cork/Dublin, County Kerry
Ten Past Seven are a three-piece instrumental shower from Kerry. In 2006 they released their debut album "Shut Up Your Face" on Out On A Limb Records. 2007 saw the band climb Carrantuohill (Irelands tallest mountain) and release the split 7" with Los Langeros "The Highest Bands In Ireland". Over the last few years they've toured Ireland extensively, played support to their heros and made jaunts overseas.
Their latest EP, ‘Bothar Buí’ (2010) very much reflects how a young band chose not to remain static but to constantly evolve and move forward. The title track features vocals by Katie Kim as well as remixed tracks by Kevin Blake, Toby Kaar and Molotov Ape and Laura Sheeran. However, this is not just about the sound; ‘Bothar Buí’ has been produced with a limited run of 100 pieces of slate each imprinted with an individual image. The are constantly developing new ideas and ways to deliver their music without the constraints of convention and finding alternative ways to carry their sound and concepts through to different audiences.
"Few live experiences come close to matching Ten Past Seven in full flight... Ten Past Seven succeed in kicking out more exhilarating jams than the vast majority of their peers" The Ticket (Irish Times)
"Ten Past Seven possess the kind of insane energy that’s usually reserved for breakcore....dark otherworldly atmosphere and building tension to a breaking point" Liam Griffin (State.ie)
