Basciville have released their anticipated new single ‘Diving Hour’ ahead of their nationwide tour starting this September.
New single ‘Diving Hour’ is an incredible follow up to their debut EP ‘Blues in Red’, and retains the sensibility of a band clearly at ease with their craft but eager to comment on the world as they see it. ‘Diving Hour’ is available for download now across all digital platforms.
2017 has seen Basciville cement their live reputation with a growing fanbase. They have just announced a nationwide tour for this September and will be calling at Galway, Cork, Limerick, Clonakilty including The Workman’s Club on 28th September. The year looks set to bring more music but more importantly the bands first shows outside of Ireland.
Cillian and Lorcan Byrne are two men growing up in a world that celebrates the short attention span. They are very much of this world, they understand it and indeed participate in this rush. Basciville however don’t operate in the world that you or I live in. They soundtrack a world that you or I aspire to. We all have glimpses of this world – where time moves at the pace that we dictate – where we have time to look around, time to breathe, time to truly live. Cillian and Lorcan are Basciville and Basciville makes sense of our world by stopping and looking around.
After graduating with degrees in music from Wexford Institute of Technology, Basciville embarked on their own never ending tour. Constantly on the road in Ireland they built up a formidable live following. They then took the plunge and released their first EP in 2016. ‘Blues in Red’ received major critical acclaim for the way it fused all their musical history, experience and skill with a spontaneous sound that instantly captured the sense of a band soundtracking a world as it should be seen. They launched the EP with sold out shows across Ireland culminating in Dublin’s iconic Pepper Canister Church.
Hailing from County Wexford, on the South East coast of Ireland, these two brothers Cillian and Lorcan Byrne have had their world view soundtracked by some of the greatest artists of our lives. Any home that reverberates to the sound of Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder and Ella Fitzgerald would march to a more soulful drum. But throw in Jeff Buckley, Led Zeppelin, Ry Cooder and of course the seasoning of most Irish bloodlines: Van Morrison, what you’re going to get is a streak of blues cutting through that soulful heart.
‘Diving Hour’ is available for download now across all digital platforms.
