Awesome Irish Band Alert: I’m Your Vinyl

Posted: 12/06/2012 in Uncategorized

I’m Your Vinyl  are a duo comprising of producer and multi-instrumentalist Ken McHugh (formerly of Automata) teamed with guitarist and vocalist Dana Donnelly. They first caught my attention back in April whilst participating in the judging process of 98FM’s Totally Irish ‘Brand New Act 2012’ competition – hours upon hours of listening to new bands, and they were the ones who (for me) stood out by a LONG shot.

I had the pleasure of catching them live as part of the Camden Crawl Dublin fringe-lineup – they took over the upstairs of The Stag’s Head early on Day 2 with a set catchy electronic-rooted pop – McHugh presiding over pre-recorded percussion and synth tracks whilst adding lead riffs live, Donnelly on rhythm guitar duty and showing off her impressive vocal talents with quirky anecdotal lyrics.

I’m Your Vinyl have released just one free download single to date (the brilliant ‘This Is Your Life’), but Part One of their album is due out this Friday 15th June. Check out the brand new Tokyo-set video for ‘Roll The Dice’ below, and if you like what you hear then head on over to iTunes!

Also, to celebrate the release, I’m You Vinyl will play upstairs in Whelans this Saturday 16th June (doors @ 8PM) for the bargain price of €8!
