Info: D-Day are a four piece 60s influenced alternative band from Galway. Drawing influence from Thin Lizzy, The Rolling Stones and The Who, brothers Darragh and Keith Whyte invited childhood friends Chris Breslin and Cathal Sweeney to complete the lineup.
Following on from a hectic summer tour in 2016 featuring support slots for Hudson Taylor, Tokyo Taboo (UK), The Riptide Movement, The Strypes and Delorentos, 'D-Day' launched their debut single ‘Misunderstood’ on October 7th, 2016 to critical acclaim.
'Misunderstood' was mixed by Grammy and Juno-nominated sound engineer Mike Fraser (Franz Ferdinand, Enter Shikari and Biffy Clyro) and mastered by Grammy award winning engineer Adam Ayan after their song 'Long Time Gone' was featured on Netflix Original Series 'Club de Cuervos'. Since then, 'D-Day' have been on a non-stop mission to introduce new audiences to their own alternative brand of rock 'n' roll sensibility.
We're delighted to premiere the new single, 'Movin' On', from Galway rock act D-Day here on Remy which is officially released today. There can be no doubt, even at this early stage in their musical career, that D-Day are the real deal and that their firebrand approach to rock will see them quickly enter the public consciousness.
The Galway band have fused a wide variety of classic 80's sounds on their new single, with 'Movin' On's opening guitar riff recalling INXS or Simple Minds, interestingly, as the song progresses both guitars and vocals recall very early U2 c.1981, but also Depeche Mode (think 'Personal Jesus'). In stamping their own blistering rock imprint on what can sometimes feel like a lost era for rock music, D-Day have managed to successfully make themselves stand apart from the crowd. 'Movin' On' is exactly the type of song you want to hear played on the radio, and I've no doubt that it will feature on plenty of end of year lists as one of the standout Irish tracks of the year.
D-Day play The Loft venue in Galway on Friday, 24th of March, and Whelan's on Wednesday, 29th of March.
