The Angel Pier – Belong

So one of Ireland’s top up and comers effortlessly move into phase two and in the process add the definite article (to become the genuine one) to their moniker. The Angel Pier have the wherewithal to be truly spectacular, for the moment we’ll have to make do with the truly excellent. ‘Align The Seas’ (a 7inch on real vinyl) will be launched in Whelan’s this Friday and sees the 4-piece reappear with a pair of fully-fledged anthems. The a-side and title track has a pulsing addictive rhythm and that special trick where songwriter Darragh Nolan orchestrates lumpen throats. ‘Belong’ is the epic flip, a song that matures quite brilliantly in the closing passages. While I’d never resort to punching the air while in the throes of a tune ‘Belong’ certainly encourages the practise. So much so that come Friday I’ll be the one with the strapped right arm. KD
