We hope you will enjoy this 4 Track EP, which is a progression of our sound
dating between 1996 to 2012. The songs, “Gridlock” and “Dame Street”
were inspired by the energy and madness that was Dublin in the late ‘90s.
The songs “Two Way Street” and “The Quickening” are an introduction to
our new venture in sound. A new album is currently in production!

Special Thanks:
Ross Ackerman for his brilliant Ovation Preacher guitar; Terry James Hawke
“The Hawke Chill-Out Sessions” (HFM 102.3 - UK); Neil Fellowes Geigertek,
“Man of Two Worlds” (One World Radio - UK); Geoff Keogh “Electrocelt”.

Dame Street
I started playing Altocirrus’s newest release “Dame Street” right after I downloaded it. I was multitasking too. Soon I stopped everything else because I was enjoying the music so much. The title track "Dame Street" has a literally industrial intro with a bold guitar to let you know how serious they are about a good time. Like the clubs on Raleigh’s Glenwood South in the midst of what was formerly a gritty warehouse and office district: heavy brick, wire glass windows, neon and a power substation illuminated by violet lights. This track is just as spirited and energetic as the weekend we live for.

Next comes “Gridlock.” Slow swells of sound interwoven with an undulatory susurrus (with a stimulating rasp) followed by electric piano like individual drops of quicksilver rain and then comes Ackerman’s guitar well supported by the McCarthy’s synth. Man, that bass. And then the rapid tempo of drums that propels you into a nice long glide accompanied by rapid-fire percussive elements put together with darting vibrative arcs and fricative shimmies enveloped by a Celtic knot of ion trails. That’s when it came to me that I was hearing something great.

“Two-Way Street” is an upbeat yet smooth toe-tapper. Then it’s time to get up and dance under the moving lights. Wear your finest because this is swank. Just the same, expect to be breathless near the end. And then a kindly cool-down that fades nice and slow toward the conclusion.

I can’t describe “The Quickening” better than to say it's a strong-driving electro that never lets you forget its pedigree. I’m addicted.
