They’ve played with Arcade Fire and The Pixies. They’ve topped the album chart in their native Ireland. And their debut UK single ‘Apollo’ is an AMAZING slice of guitar-led, melodic indie pop.
Hamsandwich – Apollo
>> The first independent band to top the Irish album chart since 1992 <<
Dublin-based HamsandwicH (the capital H at the end is intentional) will release that album – ‘Stories From The Surface’ – in the UK for the first time on May 26th. Shortlisted for the Choice Music Prize ‘Album of the Year Award’ (Ireland’s answer to the UK’s Mercury Prize), they’ve supported Arcade Fire and The Pixies, played on the main stage at the Electric Picnic Festival, performing at the legendary Slane Castle with Bon Jovi, been personally invited by Mumford & Sons to support them in Phoenix Park, and played at the President of Ireland’s Garden Party.
And from it comes lead single ‘Apollo’. Melodic, hook-laden, and heart-warmingly charming indie-pop, check it out on Soundcloud
The band will play 2 show in London next month:
March 18th + 19th – The Islington, London (Tickets)
