The Blizzards Back With New Single “Show Me The Science”

If there were any doubts that the Blizzards return was a definitive one, they’ve shattered them all. Between an 11 date sold out Back to Basics tour (where they returned to all of the Irish cities in which they originally built their following), an all-time high of Spotify plays, and brand new single “Show Me The Science”, the Mullingar five-piece have made it clear – they’re here to stay.

The Blizzards have partnered up again with producer Philip Magee (The Script, Kodaline) to create a synth-heavy, 80’s anthem. “Show Me The Science” is the fourth single from the band’s forthcoming album, due later this year.

Lead singer Niall Breslin explains, “The initial lyric idea came from an interview I was listening to on the radio about how we can now use algorithms to find love and I thought to myself, ‘that’s a load of sh*t’. I think trying to equate love to science almost takes the magic out of it. The song also comes from the idea that everything seems to have been vilified by science. I’d like to think that there are still things in the world that we are not meant to fully understand.

The song is heavily 80’s influenced and Bressie adds, “I’ve always had a deep love of power pop. I wanted to add that retro sound but still keep it sounding like the Blizzards.  It was so much fun recording and producing this and we wanted to get that across in the tune.” And as for that unforgettable saxophone solo by award winning jazz musician, Ben Castle? “We personally feel there is not enough sax solos in modern pop music. We wanted to help try bring back the glory of the sax solo as it’s the worlds sexiest instrument… just behind bag pipes!

The group have an array of tour dates, including many Irish festivals, this summer and have their first massive outdoor show of the summer on June 17 when they support The 1975 in Malahide Castle.
