We are just after a hearing a stripped back version of the James Blake track ‘Retrograde’ from Dublin band Odd Morris and we must say we are liking it a lot. There are moments when we feel that Thom Yorke maybe an inspiration here on lead singer Daragh Griffins vocals.
Who are Odd Morris you might ask?
The band released their second single in October 2019, which received high praise from BBC 6 Music’s Steve Lamacq and was named BBC 6 Recommends Track of The Week. Their third and latest single was also playlisted on BBC 6 Music as well as being named BBC 6 Recommends Track of The Week.
Check out the cover version for yourself below, the track was filmed by Jack Martin in Mish Mash cafe and the band say that Karolina runs the cafe there Monday to Saturday and is committed to exhibiting the work of local artists. Please support!
“A series of taut, visceral live shows across Dublin and beyond have already spread word about their potent songwriting, and there’s a lot more to come.” – Clash Magazine
