The 2017 winners of 2FM’s Play The Picnic Competition and recently selected as Whelan’s Ones To Watch for 2018, A Great Quiet are gearing up for a busy year ahead with the release of their Debut EP ‘Soft Breath and Echoes’ this February 2nd. The EP was produced and mixed by established producer James Darkin at Herbert Place Studios in Dublin and mastered by Greg Calbi at Sterling Sound, New York.
The music on ‘Soft Breath and Echoes’ sets an energetic tone and is inspired by music such as The 1975, Foals, and London Grammar, moving the listener across a visceral impulsive landscape.
‘Stay Close’, the lead single taken from the EP, was lauded by Today FM’s Louise Duffy and has been on rotation on her show, “I don’t know what they are pumping into the water in Athy but these guys have something really exciting.”
A Great Quiet is comprised of Athy natives, Will O’Donnell and Aran Cardiff. Formed only just a few months ago, they launched their debut single ‘Open Spaces’ on the 2FM Eoghan McDermott show and are continuing to go from strength to strength, with a string of high energy shows in the pipeline.
