Somnambular Ballads is a dazzling collection, perfectly pitched, expertly produced and brilliantly delivered - Evening Herald

Swooping melodies, glittering keyboards, to-die-for hooks make this a band worth adoring in their own right - Irish Times

Somnambular Ballads frequently hits pure pop heaven providing a delicious banquet of sound for the heart and soul. These soul boy Dubs are one of this nation’s best bands - Hot Press

Somnambular Ballads is fantastic! It’s the best Irish pop album for many many many years. Every home should have it. - John Kelly, Mystery Train, RTE.

Saville are Ken O’Duffy on vocals and guitar, brother Vinny on bass, Tony “Tosh” Flood on guitar, piano, vocals and assorted other instruments, and Joey Fitzgerald on drums. All hail from Coolock on Dublin’s northside, and the band’s history goes back to ‘95 when their first recording was nominated as ‘demo of the year’ by Hot Press. They were the first ever unsigned group to appear on Top of the Pops 2 in ‘97 with the track Vinyl, followed by video appearances on MTV Brand New. Their debut album Is Anybody Happier Today, released in 2000 on their own bdb label received rave reviews, and was declared one of Ireland’s finest albums in recent years, while the follow-up album Somnambular Ballads is again being hailed as “not just one of the best Irish albums of 2003, but one of the best albums, period”. (E. Herald). All tracks highlight the band’s talent for fusing heavenly pop with masterful songwriting. Their recent single, Whats On My Mind enjoyed a stint in the Irish charts, and gained the band TV appearances on The Late Late Show, Open House and Pop 4. Radio sessions included live appearances on shows such as John Creedon and The Strawberry Alarm Clock, while RTE’s John Kelly invited the band to record five tracks for the Mystery Train, a session deemed so good that it was recently broadcast again by 2fm’s Dan Hegarty.

Savillle are known for the great live shows, and Sunday 11th July sees them on the Ticket Stage at Oxegen, while fans north of Dublin can catch a more intimate gig in the Spirit Store Dundalk on Friday 23rd July!
