Rattle and Myles Manley

Feature

RATTLE is a band that focus almost exclusively on drums and more drums, although it's much more intricate than just that. The spectacular drums hide beneath a delicate overlay of vocal harmonies and percussive effects.

RATTLE was formed by Katharine Eira Brown (also of Kogumaza) and Theresa Wrigley (also of Fists), Rattle began as an experiment in crafting rich songs and melody using drums and voice alone, and boy did it take off. Their music weaves and intertwines post-punk, minimalism and experimental rock, through off-kilter rhythms, patterns and counter melodies.

Headlining with Rattle is Myles Manley, but he's not alone, he's bringing his Irish entourage with him. They play minimal pop songs with guitars and drums. Combining to create Tuneful and rhythmically delicious songs.

Myles Manley spent a good number of years involved in the NYC anti-folk scene and collected early releases in various styles as Greatest Hits 2012/2013, which was well received by the Irish music press. His experience in the music industry has only sharpened his talent and now he has the backing of an extremely talented band from his home country of Ireland.

A gig to suit all tastes it seems, be sure to come and see them live this Monday!
