Codes return with ‘Astraea’, a new album and a new sound


The last we heard of Codes, they were on the receiving end of a nomination for a Choice Music Prize back in 2010.

The band (Daragh Anderson – Lead Vocals, Guitar; Eoin Stephens – Bass, Synth; Vocals – Raymond Hogge – Guitar, Piano, Synth, Vocals; Niall Woods // Drums, Percussion, Samples, Vocals) relocated to London shortly afterwards to work on their followup to TreesDreamInAlgebra and they’ve now returned with ‘Astraea’, the first single from AALTARS, which retains the band’s tendency for anthemics but mixes it up with a more electronic-focused arrangement.

AALTARS is out on later and in the year and the single is available for pre-order from April 20th on iTunes. Codes will play a headline show in Whelan’s, Dublin on 30th may.

Here’s ‘Astraea’:
