La Rocca
“Sing Song Sung” [MP3]

Irish quartet La Rocca has just put the finishing touches on their debut EP, Sing, Song, Sung (Dangerbird Records), out February 14, in advance of their full-length, The Truth (Dangerbird Records), due spring 2006. Acclaimed producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, Belle and Sebastian, The Thrills) manned the boards, helping create an album that immediately sounds classic yet innovative. Pop melodies, frantic guitars and clever keyboard lines provide a foundation for the introspective lyrics, evoking a band born of late-night jam sessions, Irish beer and brotherhood—whose songs you?ll likely be singing 20 years from now.
