There are about 10 Irish albums that I return to in times of need. One of those is the eponymous debut from Dublin band Sunbear. This was a quartet that seemed to be going places fast. Melding the finer points of shoegaze with subtle melodies the album still sounds utterly contemporary despite its almost teenage years. Take ‘Resin’ with its scuzzy guitar parts and Martin Kelly’s clean vocals, which combine to form a nugget of indie genius. Along with In Motion Sunbear formed a powerful fulcrum in the Dublin music scene in the mid-nineties but neither achieved the prominence that their music ultimately deserved. Martin Kelly has a job on his hands with his new band Ruby Tailights to outshine Sunbear but from what I’ve heard of their debut album ‘Dressing Up’ things could get a whole lot rosier in the near future.
