We had the pleasure to sit down with the boys of Picture This to chat about Irish camaraderie and slang, essential relationship advice, and MDRN LV. Learn a thing or six about one of Ireland's hottest new bands in our "Quick 6″ interview above.
From the far-off town of Athy, Ireland, Picture This has emerged as a band with an anthemic sound yet profound emotional gravity. A group of longtime friends, consisting of frontman Ryan Hennessy, drummer Jimmy Rainsford, guitarist Owen Cardiff, and bassist Cliff Deane, the Irish alternative-pop band is in the midst of establishing themselves as an international phenomenon. Rising up the ranks to become the best-selling band in Ireland for two years straight, Picture This is set for similar feats on a worldwide stage with the release of their sophomore album, MDRN LV.
MDRN LV sees Picture This soaring through twelve expansive tracks that run the gamut from daring emotional highs to intimate stripped-back confessionals. The impressive sophomore effort, which features the infectious lead single "One Drink," cements Picture This as so much than Ireland's hottest music export. With the release of MDRN LV and an upcoming North American tour, Picture This is setting the stage for inevitable world domination.
