News: Dublin based alt-rockers Forty Foot release new single

Delving into the darker side of Dublin through energetic, distortion-fuelled riffs and infectious vocal melodies, “Melty Brains” is a mosh-ready anthem that takes its name from a piece of Dublin slang used to describe “a situation where someone keeps telling you a really boring story.”

Cementing Forty Foot as one of 2023’s most exciting emerging acts, the track arrives as the band’s fourth release to-date and was recorded at Dublin’s acclaimed Camden Recording Studios (previously host to artists including Hozier, Bryan Adams and 50 Cent). Opting for a one-take approach to complement their fuzzy ‘90s sound, vocalist and rhythm guitarist Sam Coffey explains:

“We all just got in the room and went for it. We had everything turned up so there’s bleed on every track, I did my vocals in the control room so there’s bleed from the monitors too. We wanted to capture how we play it live and channel that energy.” 

While the band’s previous releases chronicle the stages of grief and destructive desire, “Melty Brains” is a thunderous yet viscerally honest remark on the lives of 30-somethings that pins together snippets of stories heard amongst the bustle of pubs around Dublin. Blending a psychedelic riff with larger-than-life rhythms and an infectious chorus, guitarist Mark Dillon adds:

“We grew up in an era where rock bands played live and loud, anything else is weird to us. I love the energy and intensity of live bands and we always try to capture that with our recordings. We don’t like to sit in a booth and layer guitars over each other: we play live with a few amps and every distortion pedal. There’s so much feedback on our guitars, I thought our engineer was going to hate us. But he loved it, he got the vibe.”
