The Galway natives are launching their second EP in Whelan's tomorrow night, writes Cathy Lee.
Galway band Bob Skeleton are set to launch their second EP “If This Isn’t Love” at Whelan’s, Dublin on Friday 17 February.
They’ll keep an audience entertained into the late hours, as they play as part of Whelan’s Midnight Hour. The gig will start at 11:30pm and admission is €10.
They’ll then take to the stage the following night, Saturday 18 February in the Roisin Dubh, Galway city. The night's entertainment starts from 9pm with local support band Drown and entry is priced at €4.
The indie band based in Galway first came onto the music scene in 2015 and had success with their first single as a band entitled “Quiver”. This single was written by lead singer, Oisin Mod and following this they released their first EP “Shade” late last year.
They had a great night at their first EP launch held in the Roisin Dubh back in November 2016. “We are really excited to launch it in Whelan’s. But Saturday night on home turf will be unforgettable,” says guitarist, Eoin Hynes.
Bob Skelton is made up of lead singer Oisin Mod, guitarist and vocals Rory Ryan, guitarist Eoin Hynes and Jack Niland on drums. “If it’s anything like the last time, it’ll be insane craic,” Eoin said of the launch that about 100 people attended.
This time around the music is “not going to be the exact same style,” said Eoin, speaking of the band’s original indie sound that is now something more developed. This EP was something the band “thought about a lot" and Eoin said "we had more songs to choose from. In the end we just picked three songs that we thought would work well together, a collective set of tracks”.
Eoin spoke of the “different tonal qualities”, adding that “we used a lot of different effects in the production process that we hadn’t used before”.
Creating this EP, Eoin admitted that “There were no distractions, it was really immersive and that helped us get it done so much quicker as we were in such an isolated space” working with the band’s producer Will O’Connor in Furbo, County Galway.
