“I just want some honesty, no fairy tales from you…” sing Saint Sapphire, arguably one of the hottest bands to emerge from Ireland in many a year.
Full of passion, angst and frustration mixed with a “heady dose” of realism, Saint Sapphire capture the sound and frustrations of a generation of disenfranchised youth.
With a passion born out of equal parts passion, mixed with cynicism, they articulate the voice of a disconnected generation. A generation feeling betrayed by todays corrupt melange of Politicos and Crooks masquerading as World leaders, the band cry out for a new dialogue, one that encompasses hope and inclusion.
With “Rule the World Tonight” they don’t just knock at your door gently requesting permission to enter, they kick it down with all the subtlety of an out of control Hurricane.
Rule the World Tonight is an aural assault on the senses from the get go. From the pounding of Adam Walker on the drums to Danny Martins opening riff on the guitar which sounds more like a “Call to Arms for a Lost Generation”. The clear vocals of Sam Morgan complete the arrangement alternating between Passion and Threats in equal measure.
Available from all the usual digital outlets, Rule the World Tonight is the first single on the new GME/Sony/Orchard label and is out now:
