The New Free

“Noelle’s Burden”, penned by Eoghan McNeill, is the first official Christmas release from The New Free. The single will be launched on Sunday 27th Nov in Dublin’s very slick Odessa Club. Recorded at the famous, Grouse Lodge Studios, it has a subtle waltz tempo, coupled with lonely church warmth, powerful chamber harmonies and echoes of promises made with the best of intentions.

The band were recently invoted to record four tracks in RTE for the famous “2fm live sessions” with Dan Hegarty. They recently played The Green Village festival with Ryan Sheridan, Bipolar Empire and The Stunning. The band are presently recording their debut album at Grouse Lodge Studios set for release in Spring 2012

 “Too Many Drugs is a delightful mélange of hippy vibes, Celtic rock, punk attitude and infectious hooks. It has a restless percussive drive that takes over where The Pale left off, an accordion and a bouzouki high on something, and Eoghan McNeill's frenzied vocals. "You Shook Me All Night Long" is a crafty marriage of the AC/DC classic and Shane MacGowan’s "Rainy night in Soho". MAGIC!!!” – Jackie Hayden, Hotpress on The New Free’s recent single, Too Many Drugs.
Eoghan McNeill (Bass, Guitar & Lead Vocal), Ciaran Finn (Guitar, Fiddle, Banjo & Vocals), James O’Connor (Accordion, Harmonica& Vocals), Fiach O’Connor (Bodhran, Bouzouki, Guitar & Vocals).
Noelle’s Burden is currently available on iTunes and Tower Records!
