Reader's Wives


Reader's Wives are the kind of band we've all missed. Their avant garde pop music is the result of the four people involved, both musically and socially. They are Dubliners Niall James Holohan, Chris Morrin, Doug Farrell & Disko, and Reader's Wives is where these four guys’ hectic lives meet. In 2008, songwriter Niall James Holohan produced an album of his best twelve tunes with a view to starting a band called Reader's Wives.

Reader's Wives are the kind of band we've all missed. Their avant garde pop music is the result of the four people involved, both musically and socially. They are Dubliners Niall James Holohan, Chris Morrin, Doug Farrell & Disko, and Reader's Wives is where these four guys’ hectic lives meet. In 2008, songwriter Niall James Holohan produced an album of his best twelve tunes with a view to starting a band called Reader's Wives. Once tracked, Niall passed rough mixes of the album among friends in the Dublin underground, looking for the right combination of beautiful madheads to build on it's musical blueprint of eclectic, tidy indie rock tunes with teeth.

The band took to the road, fast becoming one of Ireland's most active bands in Europe. Eighteen months on, Reader's Wives are now a solid four piece with a sound like no other independent band doing the rounds. Following two memorable nights at Electric Picnic last summer, their debut 'Secrecy & Sex' EP was released to critical acclaim in Ireland, the UK and Europe in November 2009. The band played shows in both London & Dublin to promote the release, making friends & collecting fans along the way. Now, with recording well underway on the brand new Reader's Wives album (due for release in summer 2010) the band release their second EP, featuring the lead track Victor's Mother Juliet and four additional songs. Written & recorded in it's entirety at the band's squat off Dublin's Dame Street, the artwork was created by local indie club Tranmissions' in house photographer Kevin Breen.

With a tailored social media campaign supported by Ireland's answer to YouTube, MUZU TV, the Victor's Mother Juliet, the EP simply couldn't have been made anywhere else in the world other than Dublin. “With shades of Pulp, The Smiths and early Arctic Monkeys, the Wives have both catchy, upbeat get-off-your-arse-and-dance numbers and bittersweet, melancholic tunes offset by Holohan’s sharp, observant lyrics which move between pathos, self-denigration, social commentary and wry black humour. Definitely one to watch in 2010." - Hot Press Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
