While updating my 2011 Irish Album Release Date Calendar, I noticed that I had somehow totally missed the January release of the Fallen Drakes’ EP Death of an Actress. If I missed it, there’s a good chance a lot of other people might have too. They won Today FM’s Tony Fenton Unsigned competition recently, and as a result supported the Commitments at the O2. They’ve a huge pop-rock sound, and to me, sound like Ireland’s answer to Feeder – early-to-middle Feeder that is, not the more recent stuff. The EP was produced by Ger McDonnell, who has worked with U2 and Kasabian, so if you like your pop to sound anthemic, the Fallen Drakes are for you. Download the EP for free below.
