Kama /The Crayon Set

The Crayon Set are a music collective based in Dublin, Ireland and they play an upbeat, hook-filled mix of alternative indie pop/rock with some elements of folk and chamber also thrown in. They use a wide variety of instruments including oboe, double bass, wurlitzer, violin, cavaquinho, trumpet and flute and specialise in multi-layered harmonies.

They have just recorded their debut album in Leeders Farm Studios which was co-produced with Nick Brine (The Beta Band, Ash, Super Furry Animals) and Teenage Fanclub’s Raymond McGinley guests on guitar. The album was mixed in Leeders Farm and Rockfield Studios.

The album will be preceded by a downloadable EP designed as a free introduction to the band.

EP Release Date: 12th October

Recent Gig Highlights: FMC Showcase Tour 2011, The Phantom FM Next Becks Thing Final, Ben and Jerry’s Sundae on the Common Festival, London (Main Stage).

For their live shows the band extends to up to 10 members, which often includes a little brass section and, of course, their giant inflatable crayons.

Influences: The band have been compared to Arcade Fire, Belle and Sebastian, The Velvet Underground, Stars and Teenage Fanclub amongst others.

The EP will be available as a free download from www.thecrayonset.com and www.soundcloud.com/thecrayonset .

(We are happy for these to be streamed on your blog or to appear on playlists. The songs we are pushing are “No.1 Fan” and “I Wanted You”. )
