'The Comstocks' are a band from Newbridge in Co. Kildare, Ireland. Originally performing under the moniker 'Fresco Future', the band released their debut singles 'Morning Mourning / Maybe Ellie' and also played at the 10th annual Didsbury Beer festival in Manchester 2017, supporting Inspiral Carpets frontman Tom Hingley. However, with the solidified lineup of Cormac Dowdall, Evan Lynch, Dillan Hughes, and Conall Ó Maoláin, the band decided a fresh start was needed. 'The Comstocks' take a more stylistically aware approach to the process of creating music, recruiting long-time friend and cinematographer Alec Delaney to take control of the visual side of the band.
Debut gig on June 16th supporting Choice Award winners and fellow Newbridge-based artist Super Extra Bonus Party, alongside current Choice Award holders SHIPS, and Phare.
About The Song:
'London Pleasures' is the debut track from The Comstocks. It takes its name from the novel Keep the Aspidistra Flying by George
Orwell, in which the main character Gordon
Comstock leaves his steady job as an advertising consultant in order to pursue his passion - poetry. London Pleasures is the name of his greatest (yet unfinished) poem. Gordon
Comstock eventually abandons his passion and the poem London Pleasures to re-take his position in a steady job in order to provide for his love, Rosemary, and their child. The track was self-recorded and mixed over a period of weeks and mastered at Abbey Road Studios.
