ASIWYA: Start A Band
Mathy post-rockers And So I Watch You From Afar are back with a bang and album number four. The Irish quartet discuss the backlash they faced by incorporating vocals into their music.
Hopped up on post-hardcore records, King Crimson and youthful energy, And So I Watch You From Afar formed in 2005. Their name was chosen in haste before a show. “It was a song lyric that he [Johnny Adger, bass] loved… [but] it turned out he’d misheard it!” laughs guitarist and vocalist Rory Friers.
