The Immediate are a 4 piece group from Dublin, who sound completely unlike anything I've ever heard come out of Dublin. They blend all sorts of magnificent sounds but never stray from the beautifully melodic. Signed to Fantastic Plastic Records, they have an EP 'Make Our Devils Flow' coming out in February and their recently completed (and fantastically titled) debut album 'In Towers And Clouds' will be on the shelves by May.
Live, they're a hectic explosion, with the drummer becoming the guitarist before becoming the singer before becoming a ballroom dancer. And the others shed their skins just as often, leading an onlooker at a recent show to state the ridiculously obvious: "It's like musical chairs."
Mmmm, that's good use of a delay pedal. Added to it are the pounding drums and the refrain which has almost become the band manifesto: "Trying to be romantic with the modern world."
Their debut single, from their limited release in early 2005, this is an art rock stompalong drawing to mind some sort of amalgamation of Radiohead and the Strokes. Pop being fucked with.
Their myspace, with streaming demo versions of 4 tracks from the LP.
