Subscribe to TPOE’s New Irish Music playlist on Spotify It’s a jammers week of new releases – just as well cos I’m off to Barcelona and Primavera next week. I’m spending an inordinate amount of time trying to decide between Solange and Broken Social Scene, embroiled in a direct clash on Thursday. It’s a very […]

Come on live long

All through December, we’ll have interviews and features with Irish acts helping us to round up the past year or so. You can see all the interviews so far here. Today’s act is Come On Live Long. The four piece released their brilliant debut album Everything Fall during the summer, following it with some well-received […]


I did a double, then a triple take when I saw this gig announcement this morning. Three of my favourite acts, Halves, Come On Live Long and Liza Flume in one of the most beautiful venues in Ireland, the Triskel Christchurch. The gig takes place on Friday, December 13, and sees Halves return to Cork […]

From their name, derived from Mogwai’s second album, through their first EPs and on the 10 songs that make up their debut album, Come On Live Long spout a positive message. A Dublin five piece, they released their first single two years ago. And while all the tenets of their sound are there – harmonies, […]


Dublin band Come On Live Long release their long awaited debut album Everything Fall this Friday. Robert Ardiff, Steve Battle, Louise Gaffney, David O’Connor and Ken McCabe have taken their time crafting the 10 songs in this collection, recorded by Gavin Glass and engineered by Scott Halliday at Orphan Studios in Dublin. I interviewed Louise […]

Sea Sessions returns for its seventh outing to Bundoran, Co Donegal, at the weekend. It’s as much about the surf than it is the music, but there’s plenty of stuff to interest all music fans as well. There are also lots of Irish acts who’ll be playing across three stages from June 21-23. The full […]

COLL Everything Fall Cover

Come On Live Long release their debut album Everything Falls on July 5. ‘Mountains’ is our third taster of the hotly anticipated LP. Thankfully it’s better than Biffy Clyro’s ‘Mountains’. After the James Blakeness of ‘Little Ones‘ and the Dexys-style ‘Old Apart‘, ‘Mountains’ is a beautiful, piano-driven track with vocals shared between Robert Ardiff and […]

I was disappointed by ‘Little Ones’ when I first heard it last week. I really like Come On Live Long (evidence) but I felt a little bored by the track. It’s the first taster we’ve heard from their debut album, which is set to arrive in April/May (per their Facebook status). I think it’s because […]
