V98 Share Video for ‘Dublin’

Introducing ‘Dublin’ the debut single from emerging Irish Indie Rockers V98 (Formally Velcro98)

The first cut from their forthcoming debut EP perfectly embodies the high energy of their much lauded live shows.

Charismatic front-man Darragh Geoghan’s impassioned vocal sets a yearning tone on a bed of hook laden guitars that climax to a foot-stomping burst of vocal harmonies. 

V98’s ‘Dublin’ encompasses all the ingredients for an indie pop-rock classic, paired with a video featuring some iconic Dublin locations.

“The aim for ‘Dublin’ was to take traditional lyrical themes of love and loss – which can be voiced in quite a disembodied way in a lot of songs – and tether them to a very real location: the city which we have all lived in, left, and returned to at some time or another in our lives. At the same time there’s a kind of knowing wink to the often kitschy idea of “Irishness” in this song.

 Folk music references, Dublin bus routes, a Celtic sounding breakdown and, crucially, like most Irish love stories, it begins in the back of a pub.”  

The Video for V98’s ‘Dublin’ was directed by Dave Fox, filmed by Tom Simington and stars Mark Griffin and Karen Killeen.
