Their latest release ‘Downer Disco’, produced by Stephen Shannon, is their strongest album to date filled with their trademark hooks & dual girl-boy vocal interplay – this time with some added synth & electronic goodness.
Downer Disco was made Album of the Week by Dan Hegarty (2FM), Tom Dunne (Newstalk), John Keane (KCLR FM), Rob O’Connor (Beat FM) amongst others with single ‘Moment’ picking up support on BBC Radio 6 Music. Recent single ‘Summer Song’ was remixed by renowned producer Gui Boratto (Pet Shop Boys, Massive Attack, Goldfrapp). Their music has also featured on a number of film and TV soundtracks.
The Crayon Set are an exciting, high energy live act and have played many of Ireland’s top venues & festivals including Other Voices, Indiependence, Electric Picnic, Vantastival and Ireland Music Week. They have also supported high-profile artists including most recently Teenage Fanclub.
Fans of classic indie outfits like Belle and Sebastian, R.E.M., The Postal Service, Arcade Fire or The xx will find plenty to enjoy.
