Relief: Marie Review

Marie, is the new single due for release in August from Dublin four piece rock outfit Relief. The band were voted ‘Best Unsigned Band 2009’ by the listeners to Dublin’s 98 FM.

Marie is a mid tempo radio friendly rock song, there’s a touch of fairydust and polish about these guys that I haven’t seen on many Irish bands of late.  Having already supported Gavin Rossdale and Brett Michaels, maybe its the little bit of experience that’s helping these guys.  There’s something here reminding me of The Script and thats not a bad thing. Either way if the rest of their album ‘How to Hijack a Hearse’ is on par with ‘Marie’ we won’t be seeing much of these guys locally. They’ll be on a bigger stage.
