"The Crayon Set create music that is so infectious you will be dancing before you realise you’ve gotten out of your chair."
“If you’re looking for the kind of purity in indie-pop that you thought had gone missing in action far too many years ago, then the debut album from Dublin’s The Crayon Set will see you so right you’ll never be wrong again.”
(Tony Clayton-Lea, The Irish Times. )
The band display a knack for bright, colourful, indie-pop. This collection merges beautiful harmonies with an impressive array of instruments."
"I really love this band's sound. The multi-layered harmonies and use of diverse instruments make The Crayon Set one of the most exciting bands around."
(2 U I Bestow)
AND A NOTE FROM THE CRAYON SET THEMSELVES -
Hey there! Welcome ...
The album was recorded in various locations - including Leeders Farm in the UK, Bluebird Studio in Co. Kildare (Ireland) and Oldbridge our own, home-built studio in Co. Wicklow. It was mixed at Rockfield Studios.
Big thanks to everybody who has helped us along the way (our big extended crayon family...) and to all our friends and family. We are very proud of it - and we hope you enjoy it too.
