The Score with Castlecomer

Tuesday, December 12 - Doors 7pm - $10 adv. (All Ages)

We started writing together six years ago, and had no idea where it would take us. Just two dudes in New York, learning how to write and produce. We wrote a lot of bad songs, and tried a lot of different things. We moved to LA and wrote more songs, and tried more different things...like recording in Edan's bedroom closet. And one pop song we wrote happened to land in a commercial, and that commercial happened to be really big. 'Spotify Viral #1' big. 'Major label record-deal' big. 'Worldwide booking agency' big. And all that was really cool, but we had a problem -- we weren't actually a pop band.

We like guitars. We like rock and roll. And we like it loud. So we started doing what we like, and it's been pretty damn cool so far. Our new EP Myths & Legends is four of the most honest songs we've ever written. "We hope you like the new music, but if you don't...Chase Cornett will find you and force you to listen to it until you regret your life choices.

- Eddie & Edan ** THE SCORE




Eclectic rock band Castlecomer have today announced the video for their new single "Judy," an exploration of a taboo relationship from the perspective of the weaker party, out September 23, 2016. The group have also set a date for the release of their new EP All Of The Noise, a dynamic and experimental take on classic guitar pop, to be released October 7, 2016.

Directed by Ben Sheen (Polish Club, winner of Triple J Unearthed NIDA competition), the clip for "Judy" is playful, yet characterised by a dark, psychedelic edge. Judy is a confident, fun, normal young woman, dancing around her bathroom at the beginning of her day -- that is, until she opens her mouth to reveal the trippy surprises inside. Of the clip, Bede (lead vocals) says, "'Judy' is the most sinister tune on the EP. There's a bit of Stockholm Syndrome in there, a bit of unrequited love...we sent the tune to the director, Ben Sheen, who has been a great friend of ours for years and asked what his take on the tune might be. We loved his idea."

"Judy" is the fourth taste of Castlecomer's new EP All Of The Noise, an electric odyssey through modern alternative pop. For devotees to Foals circa Total Life Forever, and hook-addicts of all genres, All Of The Noise is an exploratory record that is characterised by its dynamic guitar riffs and Bede's distinctive vocal style. Working with the likes of Scott Horscroft (Empire of the Sun, Last Dinosaurs, Little Red) and Jean Paul Fung (Client Liasion, Art vs Science, Jackie Onassis) on the release, Castlecomer have ensured that only music of the highest quality reached the final cut on All Of The Noise. Of the EP, Bede explains, "It's a weird thing writing 50 songs with lyrics in a short-ish period of time, because there are a lot of different things that come up, but also a lot of themes start to overlap in your mind. For these five songs, you might say that there is an escapist theme underlying all of them."
