The Altered Hours ‘On My Tongue’ EP out now!!

On My Tongue EP

 

After a year’s worth of touring in support of their debut album ‘In Heat Not Sorry’, The Altered Hours headed for Dublin’s Bow Lane Studios, where over the course of three days they produced a fast-paced and grittier recording to their debut. Clocking in at just 15 minutes, On My Tongue is a window into the rock and roll heart of the group; a side they plan on delving into even deeper with their second album.

Available on limited edition pink as well as standard black vinyl.

On My Tongue | Open Wide | Over The Void | Hey No Way

 

On My Tongue 12” vinyl is available now at the following stores in Ireland:

The Altered Hours unveil video for ‘Over The Void’

 

 

Over The Void is the second single from The Altered Hours ‘On My Tongue’ EP. This song is a flash of urgency spun with wiry guitars and shotgun drum rolls. Trashy and fast-paced with a sweet submerged melody that builds with proximity and zeal with repeated questioning ‘What did you say to me?’.

Frustration palpable in the face of mystery. A conversation started but not continued. The blind faith of the pilgrim who keeps seeking but does not know why, convinced nonetheless and set alight by the unknowable.
The accompanying video for Over The Void was directed by Helio Leon, cinematography by Izabela Szczutkowska & Helio Leon & edited by Afghaniscan (Robert Watson).

 

‘On My Tongue’ EP is out on Art For Blind/Penske Recordings.

Available on limited edition pink vinyl plus standard black vinyl editions on Friday 9th March.

AH EP

The Altered Hours have announced details of a new EP ‘On My Tongue’, set for release in early 2018 on Art for Blind/Penske Recordings.

‘Open Wide’, the first single taken from the EP, opens with a bare tambourine and synth drone, before the band’s full force kicks in to introduce the guitar’s enchanting riff. Cathal MacGabhann’s relaxed vocal is alluring; Elaine Howley’s whisper echoes; while the keys swell to solidify the song as beautifully crafted. While the lyrics explore the fragmentation of morality, musically ‘Open Wide’ exemplifies the band’s elementary approach to instrumentation, producing a sonic texture that is at once simple and potent.

After a year’s worth of touring in support of their debut album ‘In Heat Not Sorry’, the band headed for Dublin’s Bow Lane Studios, where over the course of three days they produced a fast-paced and grittier recording to their debut. Clocking in at just 15 minutes, On My Tongue is a window into the rock and roll heart of the group; a side they plan on delving into even deeper with their second album.
