Shoot The Messenger - Licence To Kill
Info: Derry indie rock band Shoot The Messenger released their debut single, 'Licence to Kill' (above) yesterday with a headline show at The Thatched Cottage. Beginning their musical endeavours as a band formed through the Nerve Centre’s Sync Project, Shoot the Messenger played their first gig in June 2014 and have been gigging throughout Ireland since. After gaining support slots with The Clameens, The Bonnevilles, Goons and The Wood Burning Savages, they are preparing to launch their debut single,“Licence to Kill” recorded and produced by Glenn Rosborough.
Ah here, this is a bit of a whopper tune, Shoot The Messenger have tickled a lot of my rock sensibilities with new single 'Licence To Kill', from the thudding bass to the in your face guitar riffs and great vocals from singer Brooke Logan, both music but especially vox reminded me of Yeah Yeah Yeahs and Karen O. The band squeeze every ounce of rock goodness into the tracks 5 and a half minutes and there's a seriously lovely breakdown from just after the 4 minute mark with great escalating guitar playing and drumming, another gem from Derry city.
