Dublin alt-punk outfit  Def Nettle lean into their love of ’80s goth acts such as The Mission and Sisters of Mercy on their latest single ‘Architecture’.  The track is an ode to Def Nettle frontman Glen Brady’s hometown of Dublin. The musician has worked at the top of his field in music production, performance, and DJing for almost three decades, making music with the likes of R.E.M., Dominique Keegan (The Glass, Plant Records ), the California State Symphony and as touring member of DARK with Andy Rourke (The Smiths) and, his friend, the late Dolores O’Riordan as well as having mixed their album, ‘Science Agrees’.

“‘Architecture’ in a lyrical sense is a look back at a greyer, more isolated time in my life. There’s a sense of waiting and wanting things to happen but not being entirely sure if they will. It’s set in an early ‘90s Dublin just post-adolescence,” explains Brady of the track. “The heart is heavy like the autumnal atmosphere of the lyrics. I travel around the dark, pre-Celtic Tiger city on foot, lost with nowhere to go, out in the rain, hiding from the deluge, hugging the buildings.”

‘Architecture’ is Def Nettle’s third single following debut release The Pills and War Machine which featured his D.A.R.K compatriot Andy Rourke on bass.  Def Nettle support Scattered Ashes in The Workman’s Club, Dublin on Friday 18th November.
