Twelve Irish bands have been selected to play SXSW next March, many of whom have featured on this blog over the past few years. They are: Declan O’Rourke, Delorentos, Girls Names, Kid Karate, Kodaline, Kool Thing, Little Green Cars, Psycatron, Reid, Sea Pinks, So Cow and Squarehead. After the jump you can listen to songs, […]

Here’s a video of Squarehead performing ‘C’mon Man’, the second track of theirs that we’ve heard from the split album with So Cow, which is being released on Inflated Records. Entitled Out of Season, it’s released on vinyl and digital on November 13. That’s next week!! ‘C’mon Man’ stick’s pretty closely to Squarehead’s surf-pop ideals. […]

As premiered by Pitchfork (!!!) here’s our first new taste of Squarehead since February. It’s a big departure from their summery brand of 60s-tinged pop. There’s a vicious bite to ‘More Quickly’ but it’s all over in under two minutes. It’s just a short reminder of how talented the trio are. It’s going to feature […]

I’ve been waiting for this gig for about a year. Squarehead have been one of my favourite bands for absolutely ages but have only graced a Cork stage a handful of occasions, each time managing to coincide with me not being able to get along. But not this time. On Saturday, per the poster above, […]

I’ll finally get to see Squarehead in the flesh on Saturday, Februrary 11, when they play the Pavilion, Cork, with Land Lovers and Tieranniesaur. Until then, this will have to suffice. It’s an acoustic version of ‘2025’, the first new track we’ve heard from the three-piece since they released their debut album, Yeah, Nothing, at […]

Get your woolly hats out folks, because Squarehead are feeling so Christmassy they recorded a song for the holidays. It’s a cover to be precise, of Darlene Love’s ‘Christmas (Baby Please Come Home)’. I interviewed Squarehead singer Roy in the summer prior to the release of the three-piece’s debut album, Yeah, Nothing. Asked what was […]

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 […]

This is really cool. Squarehead and Patrick Kelleher got together to release a double A-side single. I got slightly confused trying to explain the idea behind it, but Harmless Noise says what I couldn’t. ‘Attention To Detail’ is Squarehead taking on a Kelleher-type recording and ‘Just A Tragedy’ is Kelleher apeing Squarehead. The latter could […]

“I was just standing there still sweating, going ‘thank you thank you’, so I totally botched being cool.” It was February 24, 2011, and Squarehead were playing the Workman’s Club in Dublin with Spies. It was that night when Roy, the lead singer and mastermind behind Squarehead got the indie seal of approval most bands […]
