Now almost five years since they met they are releasing their debut EP Bavarian Nights on March 3rd via 045 Recordings a label set up by Rob, Peader Kearney (Phare) and Gavin Elsted (Adultrock), named after the dialling code for their area in Kildare.
“There’s a pretty decent standard of electronic music made in Newbridge, so we wanted to create a platform to release it on,” says Rob. “We’ve had releases from ourselves and other locals like Cinema, Conor C and Super Extra Bonus Party.” – says Rob
The pair set up a night in their hometown of Newbridge called Freakuency which was located in the back room of a pub which is where the inspiration for the title of their new EP came from.
“The bar used to do a deal on cans of Bavaria, so the EP is named in memory of those nights.” – Gary adds.
Each track on the EP is named after a moment shared for the duo during their career to date.
‘Hooly’ got its name from a comical Facebook ad for a local bar in Kildare that said: “Now available for 21sts, communions and general hoolies”.
“Through doing edits and over time we developed our own sound gradually, we started to use less and less of the original tracks so that pushed us closer to producing our own music” – Rob
The track takes influence from 80’s music and samples Linndrum machine sounds that shares a similar Inspector Norse-esque as previous release ‘Girls’.
Kildare duo Gary O’Reilly and Rob Smyth or Mix and Fairbanks share the first track off their debut EP Bavarian Nights which is set for release on March 2nd on 045 Recordings.
As a follow up from their last single release ‘Girls’, latest track ‘Sullom Voe’ is of a slower tempo with electrifying synths and soothing piano that will drift you into a dreamy haze while you groove.
