Excellent debut EP from Kilkenny band 'The Thomas Donoghue Band'. They managed to effectively make music that's relevant, edgy, meaningful while still being radio friendly.
'In The Meantime' is a fantastic debut EP from a band that's compared to The Dave Matthews Band and the John Butler trio. The songs are well written mature pop rock tunes. The title track is atmospheric and edgy while 'Solice' was rightly chosen as the main track with this excellent video made for it.
The third track called 'The Sea' is for me most impressive. It peaks and troughs it's way through six minutes and it highlights the superb vocals of Thomas Donoghue. I'm looking forward to see how this band progesses over the years.
