Malibu Shark Attack have announced a Belfast show alongside fellow debutants Oh Volcano in McHugh’s Basement on 23rd May 2014.
Malibu Shark Attack are Rocky O’Reilly from Belfast and Tribe One, from Atlanta, GA; He’s the reflective, insightful and witty Wordsmith rapping atop “post-new wave-prog-electronic-indiecore-synthpop” tunes made by Rocky O’Reilly, formerly of Irish indie-pop group Oppenheimer. Support comes from Oh Volcano, featuring members of General Fiasco.
“I hate it when my favourite bands go on indefinite hiatus and later announce a new side project. They may be done, what if I’m not yet?” These are the opening lines of “Better Off As Friends,” the opening track from Trans-Atlantic duo Malibu Shark Attack’s debut album. It’s the air-clearing explanation of their enthusiasm for a new musical outlet following the end of their previous acts.
A sympathetic counselling session for anyone that’s felt the pain of their favourite artist calling it a day. They’ve called on Irish indie-rockers The Dudley Corporation to lend vocals to the track, telling the band’s side of the story. The video shares the turmoil and heartache in the loss of some of the band’s most-loved groups. From The Undertones and Sleater-Kinney to The Streets and ABBA.
Tickets go on sale this Friday priced only £6 plus booking fee.
