Limerick band Left On Read released their latest single ‘Most of All’ which is infused with indie-rock and groovy flavours on April 28, 2023
Hailing from Limerick, Ireland, Left On Read began as a series of rehearsals, unaware of what they were creating, before thoughts turned to developing a more formal project.
“It was a no-brainer to start a more formal group with our best mates,” the band recalls. “We were just having so much fun.”
As the months and years have come and gone, their sound has developed far beyond those humble beginnings. The band’s love for experimentation has allowed them the opportunity to play with a host of different styles and already have a catalogue of indie rock, funk rock, synth rock, grunge, jazz and even Latin-inspired tracks in their locker ready to call on.
Over lockdown, the band used their extra spare time to learn and develop synth textures, which has blended seamlessly into their aesthetic.
In 2021, based on four demo tracks they recorded in their bedroom studios, the band was awarded Creative Ireland’s ‘Made in Limerick’ Grant, which gave them the opportunity to head into the studio to record their debut. Finally, in July 2022, Left On Read released their debut single ‘Never Enough’, followed by ‘Pick Yourself Up’, and ‘Duet’ which received huge acclaim.
With three singles to their name, thoughts have turned to their debut album. The band were the 2022 recipients of the Dolores O’Riordan Music Bursary, which will go towards recording the final tracks for the album. “We want them to connect with it” the band says of the listeners connection to their work, “Not necessarily take our message from our music at face value but rather to be able to apply it to their own experiences. Most of all we want them to enjoy the tunes and dance, cry, or sing along – that’s what they’re there for.”
Left On Read released their latest single ‘Most of All’ which is infused with indie-rock and groovy flavours on April 28, 2023 on all streaming platforms. ‘Most Of All’ started as a bassline and was built from there. The bass riff is simple yet funky, so the band knew they could create something from this. The rhythm and guitar fell into place from there. The song sounds sexy, so the lyrical storytelling had to go that way, “We didn’t want to go too cliche, it couldn’t be the standard boy chasing girl trope we’ve heard before”.
“‘Most of All’ is a tragedy. It’s about unrequited feelings and is an attempt to brush off the hurt
to save face,” say Left On Read
Left On Read are brothers Adam Reeves (drums), and Jack Reeves (lead guitar), and close
friend Steven Tynan (lead vocals, keys, guitar).
