I hadn’t heard of these guys before so who are Jester? Well, they’re a Tipperary band who have had two previous Irish Top 40 singles, namely ‘Maria’ and ‘Scream’. Their upcoming single ‘See Saw’ is due for release in July 2010.
‘Scream’ is a hard rock track with a slight punky edge. Some slight effects on Colin Dempsey’s vocals add a professionalism to the overall sound and feel of the track. Good musicianship, clever all round production, good arrangements and a thumping drummer could make this track one of the ones to watch on Irish radio this summer.
If the guys are like this when recorded: live, I’d say you’d want to hang on to your hair!
