“I’ve Got You (On My Mind)” is the second single from The Blood Red Mountain Bands forthcoming album that is going to be released later in the autumn (due 24th Sept). The first single already reached the number one in the Irish iTunes Country charts. The band has been keeping themselves busy playing venues and festivals up and down Ireland building up to the launch of the album.
The second single definitely keeps that same alt country / Americana style of the band, but there are also bit of an indie folk feel to it. If “I’ve Got You (On My Mind)” is anything to go by, I have no doubt that the rest of the album is going to make its way to the Irish country charts, and deservedly so. The arrangement and every detail of the mix is well thought out. And what I particularly love about the track is that somehow the imagery in my mind while listening to it is not the usual country clichés, but it makes me think of driving in the rain… in Ireland.
The band’s Mark Flynn had this to say about the track and album, “Our album launch is in Whelans in Dublin on the 24th Sept 2015 and we’ll be taking it on the road after that. “I’ve Got You (On My Mind)” is available on iTunes for download and on Spotify for streaming. Recorded in Beechpark Studios and in Audioland Studios (in Wicklow and Kildare respectively) near Dublin. With producer Anthony Gibney at the helm.”
The Blood Red Mountain Band are definitely painting their own brand of Irish country music. With the Nashville country juggernauts churning out music that seems to be alienating the true country fans, The Blood Red’s might just be heading in the right direction.
