TRANSMISSION CLUB

TRANSMISSION CLUB // THE HOUR OF THE WOLF
 
Cork-based alt-rock outfit Transmission Club will release their second EP, The Hour of the Wolf, on Friday, July 13th. Recorded and produced by Chris Somers at One Chance Out Studios, the band’s sophomore release takes the listener on a musical trajectory from the intimate to the anthemic within three tracks. The E.P was mastered by Pete Maher (The Pixies, Jack White, Goldfrapp) in his London studio.
Titled after the surrealist horror film by Ingmar Bergman, The Hour of the Wolf delves into themes of isolation and fear of the subconscious, explored through a compelling blend of folk-rock and electronic soundscapes.

The Hour of the Wolf will be available from July 13th on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify. A limited CD run of the E.P will be available also. 

“Transmission Club evokes the natural wonder of the Frames and the more modern sounds of the Barr Brothers” – The Last Mixed Tape

“Influenced by the likes of Elliot Smith, Ryan Adams and Radiohead, the sextet specialises in a strikingly singular synthesis of indie, folk and grunge” – Pure M

“They’re a six-piece from Cork and they make damn good tunes”- Dan Hegarty, 2FM

Transmission Club will play at Townlands Carnival Festival, Macroom on the 21st of July, The Corner House, Cork on July 27th and De Barra’s, Clonakilty on the 29th of July. 

BIOGRAPHY 

Formed in 2014 as the bedroom recording project of Michael Prendiville, Transmission Club is quickly becoming one of the most unique acts in the Irish music scene. 

The band’s diverse sonic palette combines elements of indie, folk and grunge, textured with harmonium, violin, keyboards, guitars, drum machines and loops. Recording takes place in bedrooms and living rooms in Cork, giving the music a raw, untrammelled feel. 

Transmission Club’s first EP, Salt, was released in November 2015, gaining airplay on The Alternative with Dan Hegarty (2fm), The Paul McLoone Show (Today FM) and on 8Radio. Transmission Club also recorded a live session for The Paul McLoone Show in January 2016. Salt was voted No.1 in The Last Mixed Tape’s Reader’s E.P of the Year 2015 Poll. The video for “Taking Off (Blackhole)” was nominated for a Pure M award for Best Music Video in 2017.
