Storyfold’s debut album ‘Rocket Science’ is set to be the highest Independent release in the Irish charts this week. The album reached No.2 on the Irish iTunes chart on Friday, with only Adele keeping them from the top spot.
For a limited period, the band are streaming the entire album here:
Fresh from selling out Whelan’s with over 400 attendees at their gig last Friday night, the band has been basking in the critical glow of a brilliantly received release from both fans and critics alike….
John Meagher in the Irish Independent said:
'Revolving around the considerable talents of vocalists Paddy McKenna and Lindsey Hogan, (Storyfold) have made a sparkling debut of unabashed power-pop.... The result is a half or dozen or so songs crying out for daytime radio play. Trick of Light and Delphine Wakes are so catchy you'll be singing back the chorus on second listen... It would be a churlish soul indeed who couldn't find much to appreciate in this highly accomplished album'
Colm O’Hare in Hotpress proclaimed:
‘(Storyfold) purvey a kind of indie/power pop that is impressively timeless and effervescent…. A classic American garage band sound, mixed in with a clever, Fountains of Wayne-like gift for melodic inventiveness…. On this evidence they could well be on their to way to reaching for the stars’
And blogger Nessymon was equally effusive in her praise:
‘They write memorable songs and cross genres which makes them extremely marketable. They are indie rock but these productions make their sound huge and fit for bigger stages….Clever hooks, great delivery and musicianship and production, Storyfold have made ‘Rocket Science’ seem easy. Buy it.’
