Tremolo Band, Pogues On Stage Etc.

Tremolo is an act of creating a “shudder effect” in music  as in the tremolo arm of a guitar. It is also a name of a group-four guys accomplished in their own solo projects. These are musicians from the traditional Irish music scene. Two tracks are available in their website that you can listen to. Technically they are amazing but couple that with  their love for melodic and  passionate sound -Tremolo becomes a dragon that breath’s fire into the scene that reminds us: this is how Irish music should sound like.

Colm O’Snodaigh (Kila) & Mundy: ‘She’s Not There’ by The Zombies

Well no one told me about her, the way she lied
Well no one told me about her, how many people cried
But it’s too late to say you’re sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don’t bother tryin’ to find her
She’s not there

Well let me tell you ’bout the way she looked
The way she’d act and the colour of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she’s not there

Well no one told me about her, what could I do
Well no one told me about her, though they all knew
But it’s too late to say you’re sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don’t bother tryin’ to find her
She’s not there

Well let me tell you ’bout the way she looked
The way she’d act and the colour of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she’s not there

But it’s too late to say you’re sorry
How would I know, why should I care
Please don’t bother tryin’ to find her
She’s not there

Well let me tell you ’bout the way she looked
The way she’d act and the colour of her hair
Her voice was soft and cool
Her eyes were clear and bright
But she’s not there
