You know the story by now, a string of super singles, a number one in the Nialler9 Irish song poll of 2010 (which turned them into temporary jerks *kidding*) and a constant string of live dates around the country have made Squarehead one of the better bands in Ireland and now, we’re finally at the debut album chapter.
It’s been a long time coming. Squarehead initially recorded their debut album back in September and December last year with Shane Cullen in K9 Studios and save for a couple of extra tracks and re-recordings of old favourites ‘Mother Nurture’ and ‘Fake Blood,’ the band have patiently been sitting on it since.
Yeah Nothing is a dozen tracks of no-nonsense slacker indie pop, a fuzzy collection of lo-fi rock ‘n’ roll inspired by surf-pop, old school rock ‘n’ roll and bright guitars.
It’s released on Richter Collective digitally TODAY and physically on September 16th. Pre-orders for Vinyl and CD come with a T-shirt and they will be shipped on September 5th. A launch gig for Yeah Nothing takes place on September 17th in The Workman’s Club with support from Logikparty.
