Album ‘FOSSILS’ RELEASED August 24th 2012 + Single ‘The Worrier’ out July 20th on iTunes
From their origins as a Belfast based band with a rotating membership, Seven Summits have firmly established themselves as one of the most exciting and consistent bands operating in Northern Ireland. Their debut album received much acclaim, given the first (and only!) BBC Introducing in Northern Ireland “Album of the Month” award, as well as propelling them to the stage at Glastonbury in 2010, but it was only the first step on the journey…
With a line-up solidifying on Rory Nellis (guitar & vocals), Joe McGurgan (bass & vocals), Dominic Coyle (guitar,vocals & keyboards) and Joe Laverty (drums), the band have taken all that was good about them on their original release and multiplied it by infinity, creating a finely crafted second album; FOSSILS.
With shades of power pop bands like the Weezer and Grandaddy, the record captures that perfect interplay of guitars, bass, drums and keyboards, mixing it with the emotive and moving lyrics of Rory Nellis. The characters carved out on this record have fought for their little corner of the world, and do so with a smile, or with a tear in the eye. The world is never perfect, but Fossils finds a selection of people doing their best to make things better. As guitars chime and synths spiral into infinity, Fossils is the sound of a band looking at the past, and walking into the future.
Put it on, and get acquainted with your new favourite band.
Lead track ‘The Worrier’ will precede the album, and is an excellent taster of what is yet to come form this dynamic outfit.
