Dublin noise merchants KLUBBER LANG return with their new single ‘This Place’, sometimes unhinged, this is a track which swells and explodes, a pounding rhythm section provides a sturdy bed for Tallon’s inventive guitar lines which build into a frantic, stabbing riff. Throw Ciaran McGoldrick, a vocalist who could be described as a true wildcard; a unique vocalist who often grunts, snarls and yelps his abstract, yet unnerving lyrics and the combination deliver another compelling strain of noise rock.
‘This Place’ is the band’s third release since teaming up with Irish independent label ‘Forever in Financial Arrears’ (FIFA Records) and is the perfect follow up to their previous releases on FIFA ‘Sleep Well’ and ‘I Will Not Wait’ .With both singles not only gaining substantial airplay both in Ireland and further afield but which also garnered many admirers for the accompanying visuals and fully justifies why there is a real level of expectation about the Dublin heavy hitters.
As we come out of lockdown, Klubber Lang will also become active as a live entity and are confirmed to support Kerbdog at Dublin’s Whelan’s next May with more dates to be announced.
Klubber Lang formed in 2020 and might be a new name to some, but the band’s pedigree is note-worthy. They were formed by Revelino guitarist Ciaran Tallon, Ciaran McGoldrick on vocals and bass, formerly of (sic), ex-Mexican Pets drummer Fin O’Leary and Ronan McHugh the band’s keyboard player is also the man at the controls for mixing and production.
