David Long – Underground Song (2019)

One of our live highlights of 2018 was undoubtedly David Long’s show at Whelan’s. One of the many standout moments of the night was a track which Dave has kindly allowed us to post today. It comes from a forthcoming album ‘In Headphones’. Recorded by David Ayers the track was produced by David Long/Adrian O’Connell/David Ayers and features artwork by Noel Farrell/David Long. We asked novelist & Into Paradise fan Ben Vendetta if he would write a few words by way of introduction..

I was thrilled to learn that Into Paradise frontman Dave Long enjoyed my novel ‘Heartworm‘, which takes place in 90s Dublin. When the book was published in 2015, Dave wrote to me, saying “It’s great. I read it last night, it brought back so many memories from that time. I’m delighted that Into Paradise are in it too!”. Last week, I received another email from Dave with a new track. He wrote, “If they ever film your book I hope this song makes it on to the soundtrack!”. Having listened to it multiple times, I’d be thrilled to have this song on a soundtrack! ‘Underground Song’ hits hard like the best of Into Paradise, a poignant ballad about someone lost on his ‘musical feet’ pining for the days of the legendary Dublin venue. Namechecking Whipping Boy’s Fearghal McKee and Jeff Brennan of The Underground, if that isn’t enough to give you the chills, just wait for the end when Dave throws in a refrain from the stunning Whipping Boy single ‘Twinkle’ – “She’s the air I breathe, not too pure for me”. I can’t wait to hear more!
