Click below to listen back to the show (go to 29:07 for Sound of the Suburb interview):

Tonight I was joined in the studio for a second time by Sound of the Suburb (l-r Mike, Chris, David, Steve, Paul), to chat about their new EP, Eclectic City Part 1. We heard the unusual story about the recording of the EP (namely the different rooms it was recorded in!) & some brief speculation about part 2, alongside a live session of three of its five tracks. Sound of the Suburb have various live dates coming up, including the Dublin Castle on March 17th alongside Lace & Whiskey – check the full list, & how to get your hands on the EP, at
