Dublin six-piece BIG LOVE share new single “Is It Over Yet”.

Today, fast-rising Dublin six-piece BIG LOVE share their much anticipated new single “Is It Over Yet”.

Recorded in London with the help of producer Matt Glasbey (Alt-J, Sorry, Bloc Party), “Is It Over Yet” perfectly exemplifies why the band have been on such an incendiary rise.

The band – made up of Cian Ó’Maonlaí (lead vocals), Jack Cody (guitar/vocals), Megan Nic Ruairí (vocals, keys/synth), Dan Aherne (bass), Anton Shovlin (drums), and Adam Curtis (lead guitar) - have been gathering significant momentum having been tipped by the likes of Hot Press in their Hot for 2024, Whelan’s Ones To Watch, and RTÉ Recommends, for their widescreen indie-pop inflected alt-rock live sound.

Having sold-out numerous early headlines shows around Dublin at staple venues such as The Workman’s Club and The Grand Social, as well as playing major festivals such as Electric Picnic and Other Voices, their lustral new single delivers on all that early promise that has helped them attract such considerable buzz so far.

Is It Over Yet” has glitchy synths and drums build gently from brooding moments of rumination before soaring to cathartic and euphoric highs made up of hook-led layered harmonies and subtly discordant guitar work. The track is as pensive as it is anthemic, examining the daily turmoil we each face within our inner psyches when in solitude.

Speaking on the track, Ó’Maonlaí says:

“This song for me is an attempt at tracking and describing a wandering mind. From helpless, hopeless dread to boundless joy we can dance between the two at any given moment. The song places a protagonist sitting deep in the dark of a pub alone.

He waits for friends and happiness to arrive. He waits with an excited stomach, a feeling disguised as sick and anxious, for happiness and life to return.”

With more live dates and new music penned for 2024, the new single stands a statement of intent for the BIG LOVE. For fans, “Is It Over Yet” will mark yet another leap forwards for the band, further proving their thirst for more – both sonically and as artists. For those that have yet to hear them, there’s no better to time to get on board.

Live dates:

19th June - Gig for Gaza, The Grand Social, Dublin
