After we have known the Vulpynes, it’s time to know another band from the fresh Ireland, they are I Am A Car Crash. I want to paraphrase the Kathleen Hanna maybe more famous quote: “Kurt smells like Teen Spirit” and I say: there is some smell of Irish breeze in these days. As Teen Spirit is a deodorant, Irish Breeze is a company of quality skin and baby care. Ok, serious, the message is that Irish independent music movement is pretty interesting.
I Am A Car Crash is a sort of no-genre band with many great influences, they play loud, yay! They define theirselves as “dark poetic cloudy loneliness” or “new age, no core, no wave, post 9/11 drama”. After the strictly punky (“punk” in a good meaning) White People Problems (2013) and some line-up changes IACC have an upcoming album planned for Spring 2018. You can’t wait? Okay, Paper Cuts got a gift for you: a preview with the new track “Them Not Us”: good sounds with Sprechgesang techniques and echoes. It’s hard to define it better than their own definition: “new age, no core, no wave, post 9/11 drama”. Listen and let me know!

JD a.k.a. EMILIO vocals and guitar
TOMEK a.k.a. EMILIO bass
