It’s early February, and you realize what which means: it’s Tremendous Bowl season. The in the future when everybody can briefly care about American soccer (or at the least the commercials that associate with it) is simply across the nook. I hope you might have your rooster dip prepared, as a result of it’s time to both cheer for the Eagles or the Chiefs. Or you could possibly simply get plastered in your sofa, like I intend to do. However what good is a sport with out an anthem? Irish indie rockers Gilla Band know this nicely sufficient to have one thing on the prepared: a brand-new single entitled ‘Sports activities Day’.
Extremely industrial and chaotic to the core, ‘Sports activities Day’ doesn’t truly deal with American soccer, regardless of the shut proximity to Tremendous Bowl Sunday. I imply, c’mon, these guys are Irish, in any case. No, the soccer that Gilla Band are speaking about is soccer. Particularly, the music follows pursuits that flip into obsessions that manifest once you’re a child.
“‘Sports activities Day’ is about asserting embarrassing info (fortunately by way of a distortion mic),” singer Dara Kiely explains in a press release. “Bizarre lies you’ve advised as a baby, poor expertise you as soon as thought you had been nice at and repetitive strains that you just nonetheless deliver as much as the identical individuals. The subject material incorporates: me being 12 and coming to phrases with being crap at soccer and would by no means be an expert.”
“At an analogous age; having this peculiar routine wherein I used to say goodnight to my sports activities day medals (together with kissing my participation ones) earlier than going to mattress,” he provides. “Primarily being unusually pleased with my achievements of merely exhibiting up. Linking that out of depth feeling to the fashionable day within the form of not understanding methods to activate the PA (or something music tools associated for that matter). Additionally secretly admiring cleaning soap operas whereas consistently speaking about The Beatles to anybody who would pay attention.”
The brand new observe in all probability quantities to being an outtake or rarity that wasn’t included on their most up-to-date album, Most Regular. It doesn’t precisely sound like essentially the most fully-fleshout-out observe on the earth, however that raggedness has its personal unusual allure to it. On the very least, ‘Sports activities Day’ has sufficient grungey push and pull in it to face out among the many different current indie rock tracks. Gilla Band are nonetheless discovering their footing with their new title, however they’re getting nearer and nearer to one thing actually particular.
