The Crayon Set's third album is filled with their trademark expertly-crafted pop songs & dual girl/boy vocal interplay - this time with added synth & electronic goodness.

Irish band The Crayon Set specialise in hook-filled, alternative pop. Their newalbum 'Downer Disco' is out September '21.

“We're really pleased with the songs and the sound on the album and we can't wait to release it. The album explores a happy-sad dynamic - we’re always trying to write & record the perfect pop song but lyrically the songs couldn’t help but reflect the increasingly stressed-out world we breathe in every day.
So that's where the album title came from - the idea of sad bangers, melody with melancholy, downer disco. In terms of the disco thing, it is a bit tongue-in-cheek but we did incorporate more electronic elements and we wanted to get people dancing more. Our previous album ‘Lost Languages’ was more folk-rock and acoustic, so it was probably a reaction to that."

It was recorded with producer Stephen Shannon at Experimental Audio in Dublin in 2019. The release was put on hold due to Covid ’19.

The band would like to thank the Department of Tourism, Culture, Arts, Gaeltacht, Sports and Media for their support.
