Popular Galway band, My Fellow Sponges are back again with another new single (release date: Thursday 23rd November) in anticipation of their upcoming album, to be released in early Spring 2018.
‘The Schlieffen Plan’ contains a variety of textures, including pulsating synthesisers and a craggy wind section (Alain Halimi/Mary Morgan).
The lyrics touch on themes of perilous relationships and mental-health.
The Schlieffen Plan
The Schlieffen Plan takes its name from the military strategy which was executed by The Second Reich in 1914. The idea was to invade France via Belgium and swiftly take Paris with enough time to turn around and invade Russia before the Czar’s troops were properly mobilised.
The Galway Eye has had a sneak preview of the video for the new single – we like it – a lot!
My Fellow Sponges are:
- Donal McConnon – vocals, banjo, guitar, harmonica, clarinet
- Anna Mullarkey – Vocals, piano, synthesiser, bodhran, guitar
- David Shaughnessy – Percussion
