Able Archer: The Trouble with Strangers

Have Dublin alternative rockers Able Archer gone soft? After the fist pumping single Ghostmaker all signs pointed to an energetic EP. The Trouble with Strangers turns out to be a far more complex release. With the orchestrated (trumpet, strings) slow songs The Warden and The Descent and off-kilter time changes in Only Love (power pop meets Spear of Destiny) they have expanded their musical palette. It'll be interesting to know what they will be come up with for the next one.

Able Archer:
Emmet McCaughey: lead vocals
Neil Buckley: keyboards
Rob McDonnell: guitar
Diarmuid Breathnach: bass
Seán O'Connor: percussion
