Dublin band Groom are getting ready to release their latest album, ‘Marriage‘, which is scheduled to drop this month. To launch the record, they have a gig planned for 21 August at the Lower Deck in Portobello, Dublin.

I’ve had a sneaky listen to the album and it’s a beautiful thing – the band have stepped it up a notch since last year’s ‘At the Natural History Museum’, and crafted an album that flows together perfectly.  It is, as you would expect, about love – but not just any ordinary run-of-the-mill love stories. There’s a song about a lab worker remembering an ex-colleague that’s a total hoot.

Groom, like other Popical Island bands such as Land Lovers, have funny, odd lyrics that will bring a wry smile to your face. It’s a joy to hear this band getting better and better.
