In this edition of T.L.M.T’s song of the week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to No Monster Club and their new track ‘I’ve Retired’.
Fueled by a playful indie-pop core and given definition by fuzzy alternative-rock edges, No Monster Club meld catchy lyrics and melodies into an aggressively distorted sound with the brilliant ‘I’ve Retired’.
Always one to use juxtaposed textures and styles in his songwriting, Bobby Ahern’s irrepressible inventiveness is what makes the artist such a unique entity on the Irish music scene. With ‘I’ve Retired’ serving as an encapsulation of this creative spirit.
Jangling, hard-edged and infectious No Monster Club’s new single is an exciting glimpse into the group’s forthcoming album People Are Weird, with the band clearly not losing any of their manic ingenuity since the release of Foie Gras in 2013.
It is for these reasons that ‘I’ve Retired’ by No Monster is this week’s addition to The Mixed-Tape. The song’s parent album People Are Weird is due for release on February 3rd.
