Track of the week - Sarcasm Is Sexy by Undercover Martians

Quirky North West Ireland indie 4 piece Undercover Martians are back with the first single taken from their upcoming 5 track EP.

Sarcasm Is Sexy was initially written in late 2018 and first performed back in early 2019. They recorded all their previous music with friend of Blowtorch Anthony Wall. They have changed up the approach for their debut EP, working with Luke Devaney from The Blue Room Studio in Grange, Co. Sligo.


The band reckon "the song is our poppiest to date" and we are not inclined to disagree. It still retains some of the rawness of the early singles (recorded by Anthony in a Sligo front room), but it's more polished and structured.


Lyrically, the song deals with the initial stages of a relationship - all of the nerves and excitement that comes with meeting someone and falling in love for the first time. It simultaneously describes the anxieties and uncertainties of early relationships, as well as the exhilaration that comes with them.


It is the first taste of the band's debut EP and, no sarcasm, we are well looking forward to it.
