Apocalypse In Metropolis

  1. Apocalypse In Metropolis 3:16
Released July 01, 2022
The Debut Single From New Irish Psychedelic Rock Band Cosmic Embers
For release 1st July.
In the summer of 2021, Paddy O’Keeffe picked up a guitar in the company of his nephew, talented bassist Adam Walsh. Before they knew it, ten months had passed, and not only had they written countless songs together, but they’d enlisted Adam’s father, Anto, to join the team too.

Cosmic Embers are the newest Irish psychedelic rock band. Their debut single, ’Apocalypse in Metropolis’, serves as a manifesto for what the band is capable of, even already. A cautionary but humorous tale about readapting to life in society after growing happily accustomed to isolation, the song was inspired in part by George Romero's zombie films, Dawn of The Dead and Land Of The Dead. O’Keeffe croons in his low baritone about “creeping around corners/and staying out of sight”. His delivery is convicted, whilst remaining tongue-in-cheek.
Anto Walsh's drums are a rock-solid core to the track, while his song Adam’s command of the bass guitar is evident.  Layers of soundv build throughout the track, climaxing in a real Theremin featuring late in the track. There is no family in Ireland making music like this. Come and pay them a visit. The psychedelic kettle is on.
