Our Native State_81 as Smart Object-1

Indie Folk/Rock band Our Native State release their new single and video for ‘Loaded Dice’.

Our Native State are a five piece band from Donegal, Ireland.  The latest single ‘Loaded Dice’ is their second release from Andromeda Artisans and is taken from their debut four track EP, titled ‘These Times’.  Combining a diverse range of instrumentation and vocal harmonies wrapped up in catchy hooklines and memorable melodies, Our Native State create a style that has captured audiences in Ireland and beyond.  Loaded Dice however has a more laid back acoustic feel and the listener can really focus on the story and message in the song where you really get to appreciate the fine songwriting of frontman Tommy Callaghan.

‘Lately the mirror shows a different face, And I don’t know if I can keep this pace,

As the penny drops, the music stops’

The song is accompanied by a video directed by Christopher Curran from Digital Creatures (www.wearedigitalcreatures.com) It is available for purchase on ITunes HERE.  Check out the video link below.

The band has toured extensively in Ireland and Germany and have appeared at the major Irish Festivals including Electric Picnic, Castlepalooza, Hard Working Class Heroes and twice headliners at the Swell Festival on Arranmore Island.

The EP was recorded in Donegal at Attica Studios (Villagers, Soak, BellX1, Walking On Cars) and was produced by Michael Keeney (Foy Vance, Duke Special).

“An attractive collage of alternative folk and indie rock….deliciously understated and charmingly catchy slices of folk that build towards captivating hook lines.”
