Irvine is an independent rock band formed in 2006 by brothers Bob and Chris Thorpe. Since then the band has spent much of their time performing, writing and recording in London, England.
For Irvine the last three years of work have led them to the sound of their new EP “Raising Weathered Sails”, which captures the essence of the band’s musical philosophy of creating powerful original music that is easily accessible yet still maintains a high degree of artistic integrity. The band’s emphasis on strong melody is balanced by the progressive undertones in their arrangements, rhythms and chord structures, drawing on influences ranging from artists such as Jimmy Eat World and Jimi Hendrix to Blindside and As Cities Burn. The intensity of Irvine’s live performances is a testament to this careful balance, constantly swaying between the beautifully melodic and the chaotically abstract.
