Artist Spotlight: Angel Pier (“Skulls & Xs”)

l_4c3a3694221707341ea0499e40e0172aIf you like dark indie pop, then you’ll love “Skulls & Xs” from Irish band Angel Pier. This track has previously only been available for purchase at their shows (on the Sacrifice EP), but for those of us that live across the pond, here’s our chance to take a listen. Angel Pier makes a discordant noise through unhinged classic pop melodies by layering looping drums and brooding bass, a confrontational guitarist with severe riff-tourettes & a melancholic vocalist with dark lyrical tendencies. The band is currenrly recording new material for the release of a single and limited 7″ in April and will be playing dates across Ireland in April and May. The debut album will follow later this year.
