Dublin act GANGS to record debut EP

9a48f3e9-2def-4d68-9806-acce758a5108GANGS have announced that they will be recording their debut EP with the Dublin label Reekus Records, under the guidance of Brian Foley, bass player with iconic 80’s band The Blades.

The teenage rock and roll quartet will begin recording this weekend and look forward to drawing on Foleys experience as both a musician and producer.

“We’re delighted to be working with Brian (Foley), he’s a hero of ours so we’re really excited about working with him. The Blades played a big part in our development as a band and we really look up them.” Jordan Curtis – GANGS Frontman

Speaking at the announcement, owner and founder of Reekus Records Elvera Butler had nothing but praise for the Dublin four-piece. “I am delighted to announce that Reekus will be working with GANGS for their debut EP. These four teenagers are extremely talented and will no doubt make big waves both here and abroad when this EP comes out. Without a single release they have been selling out venues around Dublin which is testament to their infectious music.”

The EP is an ode to Dublin and explores life and growing up in the capital through a younger vantage point. The four tracks, each distinct yet bound by a common theme, document the tumultuous love affair between a young man coming of age and his city.

The 4-track EP is set for release this July. Stay tuned for more.
