And So I Watch You From Afar cap off 2013, a year during which they released their third album All Hail Bright Futures, with a December 31 show at the Crane Lane in Cork. The New Year’s Eve gig is the fifth and final date of an Irish tour that takes the band through Dublin, […]

Castlepalooza is the last music festival to reveal its lineup I think. It’s held in Charleville Castle, Tullamore, Co Offaly, on the August bank holiday weekend, August 2-4. That’s the same weekend as Oxegen and Cork’s Indiependence so it’ll be a battle between the three for punters. This is the seventh year of the festival, […]

Northern Ireland’s And So I Watch You From Afar are gearing up to release their third album All Hail Bright Futures next month, March 15. We’ve heard two songs from it to date, ‘Big Thinks Do Remarkable’ and ‘Like A Mouse’. We finally have an Irish tour date though: The four piece are playing Cyprus […]

And So I Watch You From Afar release their third album All Hail Bright Futures in Ireland on Sargent House on Friday, March 15. We heard the first cut from it, ‘Like A Mouse‘, just before Christmas and now we have ‘Big Thinks Do Remarkable’, “The sun is in our eyes,” marks the centrepiece of […]

It’s widely accepted that 2010 was a classic year for Irish bands, one that was always going to be difficult to reciprocate. Last year, the Point of Everything did a Best Songs of 2010 list that featured a measly six Irish bands. Looking back, so many more Irish bands deserved to feature. Irish music is […]

I think it’s safe to say that the One Fine Day EP is quite a departure from Tony Wright’s work with former band And So I Watch You From Afar. I hadn’t heard anything by Versechorusverse until Tony tweeted over the weekend that the EP was available. It’s all acoustic and as far away from […]

You will have heard ‘7 Billion People All Alive at Once’ by now if you had bought And So I Watch You From Afar’s latest album Gangs. Jape has since gotten his hands and ears on it and come with with a remix that is longer than the original and almost indistinguishable. If you strain […]

I don’t know how they became everyone in Ireland’s favourite band, but the hardest-working group in the country (which almost definitely explains it) are back with their second album. And So I Watch You From Afar – let’s call them ASIWYFA from here on out, okay? – have grown in stature immensely in the past […]
