It’s an Anthemic Piece of Summer Groove
If you’re looking for a track that evokes summer freedom, look no further than the latest indie-disco banger from Dublin’s Loraine Club. Named after a cycling club one of the band members’ dad joined in the 80’s, the new single has a serious touch of nostalgia running throughout, with a contemporary production standard that we love. It’s a totally infectious piece of modern disco.
Consisting of six members – Jordan and Zac Curtis, Jonny Halpin, Brian Smith, James Connolly and Mick Keeley – Loraine Club began back in 2015, when brothers Jordan and Zac began writing together after collaborating with their own bands. Over the years, additional collaborators were added to the line-up, with each member bringing unique musical influences and flair to the band.
Speaking on their new EP, the band state
“The EP is kind of like an introduction to Loraine Club, some of the songs on it would be the first songs we’d play as a band. Like most artists these days we never wanted to confine ourselves to one style or sound so I feel like this EP shows four different sides to us, from electronic disco in starting now, to psychedelic dream pop in Desire, then we have the more moody atmospheric wanna know and a 90s RnB breakup song in heartbeats. Its a pretty random collection of songs but it works well for some reason which kind of sums up Loraine Club; a collection of different influences mashed together to make something we think sounds pretty original and that you can groove to. I think its a testament to what a great producer zac is that he’s managed to bring this idea to life considering most of the EP was recorded in a printing factory haha”
