Today, Irish indie rockers The Academic release their new EP, Acting My Age, via Capitol Records: LISTEN HERE. This week, they also shared the brand new music video for the EP’s title track: WATCH HERE.
Produced by Kaiser Chiefs’ Nick Hodgson, the EP opens with the band’s Capitol Records debut single “Anything Could Happen.” The six tracks that form this project act as a timely introduction to The Academic, right as they commence their journey to take their music beyond the confines of their home country.
The Academic are already deemed hometown heroes in the heart of Ireland, with a number one album to their name and sold-out shows around the UK – and having been hand-selected by Mick Jagger to open for The Rolling Stones in Dublin. Their songs are the sort that make a quick impact; sharp, buoyant, and explosive. They embrace the electric guitar and aren’t shy of arena sized choruses.
