Easy like Saturday morning
Saturday Captains are a brand new Dublin duo featuring Barry O'Mahony, former frontman of Luggage, and Brendan Tallon, formerly of Revelino.
This eponymous self-released debut is a pleasantly startling collection of beautifully crafted and delightfully dreamy alt pop.
On this initial evidence, O'Mahony and Tallon are a fine songwriting partnership. Give it Up is a sublime slice of jaunty, bluesy but breezy guitar pop.
The closing track, Fool Then, is a reflective torch song where Tallon and O'Mahony's vocals blend beautifully.
Eschewing the bog standard practice of the customary album launch in Whelan's, this enigmatic duo haven't even announced a single live show to date.
In the meantime, check out their Soundcloud page, where you can listen to four of Saturday Captains' standout tracks.
