NEW SINGLE: Released Nov 26th 2010.
‘SUNNY SIDE STREET’+ B-SIDE ACOUSTIC VERSION ‘LONG MAY YOU REIGN’ AS featured on the NORTHERN IRISH TOURIST BOARD TV, RADIO AND CINEMA ADVERT.
After a busy year, the Belfast foursome: John, Shelly & the Creatures announce the final single release of 2010 from their critically acclaimed debut album Dinosaur. The new single ‘Sunny Side Street’, will be accompanied by the new acoustic version of ‘Long may You Reign’ as a b-side. (Currently used in the new season Northern Ireland Tourist Board Tv, radio and Cinema advert). ‘Sunny Side Street’ is another melodic acoustic pop song resplendent of the bands multi faceted prism of sound, tone, texture and harmony.
Injecting vital fuel into the JSATC machine, the success of their single Long may You Reign (which was picked for the ad over Greenday!), has buoyed the band, not only heightening their profile across the island, but affording them the comforts of a new tour van, and helping them fulfill a packed touring schedule over the last year.
On the lead up to their Debut album launch, they performed on Ireland’s biggest and most well known TV show: THE LATE LATE SHOW. Their album received rave reviews from national publications, declaring the band as ‘BRILLIANT.. Dazzling’ (Irish Independent), ‘Sublime’ (Irish Mirror), “Effortlessly monumental’ (AU)…& destined for greatness.
Currently recording their 2nd album yet to be titled, the band will also emerge with a new band name in 2011. Before then, they play a host of shows around the country.
