The Stupid Song marks Ash Red as the next Irish post-punk band to get excited about

Formed in January 2019 by Conrad Twomey, Arthur Murray and Maciek Zwirkowski, Cork band Ash Red have just put out their post-punk influenced debut single The Stupid Song via Galway’s Blowtorch Records. Instantly catchy and supremely enjoyable, the song is not nearly as stupid as the band claim.

Arthur (the guitarist) came to practice with the most stupid two note riff we ever heard. As a joke we played and I guess it just worked. The song is about loneliness and desire to be noticed in the world but it’s really not that deep, they are just words.
