The Crayon Set have just announced the release of a new single ‘Don’t Step Back Too Far’. It’s from their forthcoming third album ‘Downer Disco’. About the track, the band said: “This can be a tough time of the year for a lot of people. The song touches on how it feels to be low, to have lost a sense of yourself and your place in the world.”
The album was produced by Stephen Shannon at Experimental Audio and will be out later this year.
The Dublin-based band specialise in catchy, alternative pop.
The band released their debut album in April 2013. It was produced by Nick Brine (Teenage Fanclub, Super Furry Animals). Single ‘No.1 Fan’ received airplay on BBC Radio 6 Music, Today Fm and RTE amongst other stations and a number of tracks featured on Irish TV programmes.
Its follow-up, ‘Lost Languages’ was produced by Gavin Glass and released in 2017. The album was a move away from the indie pop of their debut and was in part a homage to many of their favourite ‘Americana’ artists. A number of tracks were play-listed on Irish radio stations. Musician.ie made it their Irish album of the year.
The band have just finished recording their third album with producer Stephen Shannon and it is scheduled for release in 2020
