The OurZ: unsigned "Dirty Rock N Roll" band from Dublin, Ireland (E107)

About: The OurZ

The OurZ: unsigned

When I listen to the songs of these undoubtedly talented and charismatic Irish rockers, I keep being amazed how in the times of the mass culture such original, full of energy and drive bands can emerge? No doubt - this is one of the most interesting "guitar" bands I've heard lately.I'm looking forward to the release of their debut full-length album.

1. How do you see yourself in 5 years? What is your main goal as a band?
In 5 years time, we see ourselves still making the music we love making & still enjoying the close unity we have as a band. If we're still enjoying our music, we will consider ourselves successful

2. Can you name some peculiarities that define the music scene in your town/country?
The music scene in Dublin/ Ireland today is driven by singer/Songwriters, all fighting it out to get on X-Factor, BGT or The Voice. The radio shows only play tracks that sound like other popular tracks. If we had to change our music to get more AirPlay on the mainstream radio shows we would not even consider it. We are a "Dirty Rock N Roll" band now & forever.

3. What do you think of episode 107? Which of the other featured songs do you like the most?
Episode 107 was really cool. The fact that RandR World are supporting independent original music from around the world is just really cool. Keep up the good work!

4. Is there a story behind your song "Last Chance"?
We don't have great deep meanings behind our tunes. Primarily the lyrics just need to fit the melody & feel of the tune. Last chance tips it's hat to the wild west!

5. Please share your nearest plans. What are you currently working on?
We are currently holed up in our dungeon, putting the finishing touches to our debut (yet to be titled) album. 13 tracks (we're not afraid of that number) of pure "Dirty Rock N Roll" 47 mins of music that we have poured our very souls into. We live & breathe these tunes. We are very, very happy with the progress. We have one more day of mixing Wed 30th May & then it's on to be mastered. I promise that RandR World will be one of the first to have access to the finished project.
