Only Real returns with new single 'Pass The Pain'.
'Pass The Pain' is swirling, colorful psychedelia, underpinned by a unique vocal drawl that allows Niall Galvin's idiosyncratic word play to pour out and run all over his woozy guitar lines. Its upbeat, uplifting and a perfect hit for the summer.
Only Real first emerged on LuvLuvLuv Records with his debut Days In The City EP. This was followed up earlier this year with his first single on Virgin EMI with 'Cadillac Girl', a track recorded in Atlanta by Ben H Allen (Deerhunter, Cee-Lo). The last few months have seen Only Real work on his debut album, which is due out early next year. It's been produced by Ben H Allen in Atlanta and Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand, Childhood) in London.
'Pass The Pain' is the follow up to Only Real's first single on Virgin EMI "Cadillac Girl". The track saw praise in the likes of NME, i-D The Beat and Wonderland, alongside various plays on Radio 1, including Huw Stephens.
