Columbia Mills’ Share Latest Taste of Forthcoming Album

‘Strange Game’ was the first single from Columbia Mills’ upcoming sophomore album, ‘CCTV’, and it garnered huge radio support here and in the UK including John Kennedy Radio X, Play Irish Artist of the week with Today FM, Dan Hegartys (2FM) Track of The Week and heavy airplay across all national and regional radio stations. Columbia Mills have just released ‘Who Am I Supposed To Talk To Now’, the second single from highly anticipated ‘CCTV’ (due for release 2020).

Constant musical development has marked the journey of Columbia Mills since the band’s inception in 2014.

Brothers Fiachra and Uisneagh Treacy found like minds in Ste Ward, Paul Kenny and Mick Heffernan in Bray, Meath and Dublin.

Their mission statement was to merge electronica, dance and pop while fostering a spirit of inclusion always evident at the long-gone club in Dublin’s docklands from where they took their name.

‘Never Gonna Look At You The Same’ and other songs on their debut EP ‘Factory Settings’ smelled like prime Mary Chain but 2015’s EP ‘The Perfect Day’ found them transitioning from the Reid brothers’ influence to more beat-driven cacophonies on its title track and the quietly epic ‘History’.

On 2017’s debut album, ‘A Safe Distance To Watch’, they transitioned again. One of its stand-out tracks, ‘This City Doesn’t Feel Like Home To Me’, reflected the disappointment lead singer and principal songwriter

Fiachra felt with Dublin after arriving from Bray in pursuit of a musical career; a city that was said to prize its artists, now prices creativity beyond its boundaries.

With new member, Ken McCabe on keyboards/electronics, Columbia Mills’ burgeoning fanbase will be in no way surprised that the tracks on their sophomore album, ‘CCTV’ (due for release in 2020) sees continuing evidence of that constant music development.

‘Who am I Supposed To Talk To Now’ is a song about losing someone who was always willing to help and sacrifice themselves for others. The song is tinged with guilt for not recognising that this person needed help more than anyone and the empathy that they possessed was born from their own experience with depression and hardship.” Columbia Mills
