Cork group Pontious Pilate and The Naildrivers, have been writing, performing and independently releasing their own music for a number of years, to an ever-growing and loyal audience. Having shared the stage with The Undertones, Bad Manners, The Skatalites, The Beat and The Selecter. The group have returned with their latest single Own Your Spectrum, which is taken from their full-length debut album due out later this year, Kick The Megaphone.
A dynamic, foot-stomping, musical feast Own Your Spectrum is 2 minutes and 20 seconds of overflowing energy with a dance-like ska beat, bleating horn arrangement and a high-tempo vocal delivery. Wrote about the internal arguments everyone has but not necessarily the answers to, The Naildrivers have produced a ferocious new single with a vintage ska sound.
With their debut album Kick the Megaphone, scheduled for later this year. The group’s debut promises to be a concoction of styles from the raucous ska/punk energy the Naildrivers have become known for to the R&B soulfulness of tunes like Chemistry and Daddy Say’s, the stripped back rawness of the vocal and guitar of Tragedy Plus Time, to the quasi mariachi speed ballad of Ring a Rosie.
Own Your Spectrum is available on Bandcamp now and all other platforms from May 14th.
