Riding The Low were formed in 2006 by Paddy Considine, after he had a revelation watching indie rockers Guided By Voices. The band are named after a quote from a Lee Marvin biography that Considine had given his father as a gift. Upon reading the book after his father’s death, Paddy knew instantly that this would be the name of his band.
All he needed now was to find the other musicians…. Richard Eaton had been in bands with Considine since they were teenagers so it was a given Eaton would play bass. Through Eaton came Chris Baldwin and then Dan Baker on guitars, and with a revolving seat of drummers Riding The Low was born.
Their latest album titled: ‘The Death Of Gobshite Rambo’ saw the band finding their studio groove at Magic Garden studios. ‘Gobshite Rambo’ is their most complete work to date. The band sonically and lyrically explore themes of triumph and loss and have expanded their repertoire by introducing beautiful string arrangements and punchy brass.
The band are due to head into the studio early in 2023 to record their next album, ‘Of The World Form Dead Zones’. Paddy: “We have six albums written which are all lined up like movies. Each has a different theme, but they all seem to link. Lyrically ‘Gobshite Rambo’ spoke a lot about my childhood, but ‘Dead Zones’ speaks about the world at large. Particularly what has been happening in the past eighteen months or so.”
