Stories from the Surface by Ham Sandwich: Interview with Niamh and Podge
On the latest pod, we are talking about Stories from the Surface by the amazing, dazzling Irish band Ham Sandwich.
Originally formed on a good Friday in noughties, they have rightly built up a reputation as one of very best live acts.
Their lives show and their 2010 White Fox built them up a supportive and loyal fanbase and Stories from the Surface rocketed right to the top of the charts when it was released in April 2015.
Over the course of ten tracks, they bring you their unique house blend of indie folk rock, with infusions of disco and funk. There's tremendous fun and joy, perhaps best captured by the lead single Illuminate.
The album's incredibly catchy melodies are paired with lyrics which are often equally rememberable.
