The Ambience Affair – Fragile Things

Now this is exciting, the first movements from a bright new Irish band whose first EP ‘Fragile Things’ has just been released on Indiecater! The Ambience Affair is Jamie Clarke and Marc Gallagher and because they are a work in progress there may be more members joining at some stage. Jamie got in touch a couple of weeks ago and I was a bit taken aback at the strength of their songs, especially since himself and Marc only started playing together a few months ago. Their sound is primarily drawn from acoustic resources which when combined with Jamie’s forthright vocals makes for an arresting listen. The tunes are robust and reward repeat visits, parts that you may miss initially turn up several listens down the line. The 4 track EP is streaming on indiecater where you can also read some background info on the band from the band themselves. KD

    I saw them supporting Villagers in The Stables. They were the first act on of the three and I thought they really deserved a later slot. Really strong tunes that put you in a bit of a trance. Also the case for the EP is really nicely handmade.
