The Celtic Social Club – The Edge Of The World + For Real (digital single)
Always looking for the ideal formula to unify pop, rock, folk and traditional music, The Celtic Social Club seems to be approaching the magic recipe on these first two extracts from their new album Dancing Or Dying ? (which will be released in October 2021). Two deliberately pop-rock titles that invite you to a dancing optimism and a fierce energy to face the post-lockdown world.
Side A: The Edge Of The World
Between heroic guitars, new-wave rhythm and torrid gavotte (traditional Breton dance.), “The Edge Of The World” takes you in four minutes of raw energy. “It’s the present moment that counts !” proclaims their singer, Dan Donnelly. “Forget the past and don’t worry about the future, because there will be no turning back!” . A fierce optimism with a deliberately pop-rock sound where the seven Franco-Irish encourage us to “not fear the edge of the world”.
Side B: “For Real”
With its violin worthy of the Dexys Midnight Runners landing in a Beatles branded universe, “For Real” is a slice of raw optimism with a deliberately pop sound. The seven Franco-Irish are claiming loud and clear that, when the world gets back into action, they will be ready… and for real.
