Lead singer Nicole has been the primary songwriter for the project, crafting heartfelt tracks that resonate with audiences. The songs on “All Over The Chip Shop” were initially composed on an acoustic guitar in Nicole’s room, and through collaborative efforts with the rest of the band, they evolved into captivating musical arrangements. Nicole expresses her joy in witnessing the evolution of the EP, stating, “It’s been so lovely to see it all come to life.”
The EP’s title, “All Over The Chip Shop,” draws inspiration from a lyric in one of the tracks, “Honeysuckle Daydream.” It captures the essence of feeling disoriented and lacking control in life, particularly during the tumultuous phase of one’s early 20s. The phrase humorously encapsulates the experience of being young, in love, and perhaps a little intoxicated, as symbolized by the image of being in a dirty chipper.
Since their debut single, “Honeysuckle Daydream,” Still Blue has garnered significant attention in the Irish indie scene. Their unique sound, led by Nicole Lyons’ captivating vocals, combined with Ruairi Forde’s guitar skills and Greg Kearns’ dynamic drumming, has earned them a spot on the prestigious 2FM Rising list of ‘Irish musical acts to watch.’
“All Over The Chip Shop” EP promises to deliver a captivating and emotionally charged listening experience. Still Blue’s music resonates with its audience, addressing personal and vulnerable themes that evoke introspection and relatability. The EP ventures into a rockier sound, a departure from their previous releases, showcasing the band’s versatility and growth.
