After this months nominees were whittled down to just four, the shimmery brilliance of ‘Colour Fader‘ by Dublin three-piece Funeral Suits, has been chosen as January’s New Irish Music Track of the Month.
With esteemed producer Stephen Street (The Smiths, Blur) at the helm for their debut album, which is due for release later this year, big things await in 2011.
Here’s what NIM had to say about it and I wholeheartedly agree. Splendid stuff:
Reviewing this is hard, because we’ve no idea why we love it. We do know we spent January yearning to “feel like a flower” and telling people “I’m a machine.” Some may say we’re getting ahead of ourselves by suggesting the forthcoming album as a Mercury Prize 2011 nominee, but with some help from our media, that could just be the tip of the iceberg for The Funeral Suits. Ace.
