- Irish based band REMMA signed to one of the largest international record labels New York based Sanctuary Records in 2004 and their single Worry Young was released in the US on September 14th! Their single was on the play list of several radio stations throughout the states following its official release on the Sanctuary owned Attack label. Worry Young entered the American top 200 charts at No.153 and had risen to No.121 within a week of its release and has reached No.4 in the Tower Records best sellers charts not bad for a young bands first release. REMMA who played their first live gig in February 2003 were pursued by most of the leading international record labels in recent months before finally signing to one of the largest labels Sanctuary Records in July 2004.

This was written in a san fran magazine during the release of "Worry Young"
When Smiths legend Morrissey signed to the resuscitated Attack Records earlier this year, part of his deal gave him A&R control over the label. He immediately inked his friend Nancy Sinatra, but he also went out and hit the clubs and discovered the wondrous Remma. A super-young Irish quintet, Remma have released their debut for Attack, the Worry Young EP. Coming across as a mix between a guitarier Coldplay meets Irish acts of times past like Frank and Walters or a male-fronted Cranberries, Remma combines chiming and crunchy guitar lines from Colm O'Herlihy with frontman (and brother) Shane's golden-throated tones. All three tunes ooze quality, from the title track, as heard on Player .056, to the decidedly more uptempo "Sincerity", to the melancholic EP closer, "Conversations Getting Old."With age on their side, and handful of ultra-quality tunes already under their belt, Remma are well on their way to proving that not only can Moz record excellent music, but he knows it when he hears it, as well.

This review from the Tripwire an American magazine
You probably have heard them namedropped on everyone's list these days. Morrissey had them on his "Songs To Save Your Life" CD that came with NME a few months ago. Scenester DJs like Popscene's Aaron Axelson in San Francisco have them in their Top Five. Who are Irish newcomers Remma? Apparently Morrissey liked them enough to sign them to his Attack label after seeing them once in a Scottish club. Currently one of the "Top Ten Young Bands"in Ireland. They have played the festivals and TV shows in their native land and now looking to the US shores. First track "Worry Young" is a building number, violins set up a chorus based on soft/hard dynamics which kick in with a wash distorted guitars and falsettos. The double time ending must sound great in a club. Second track "Sincerity" finds the start and stop guitars riff reminiscent of earlier '90s US post-hardcore rock bands. Final track "Conversations Getting Old" plays off the lyrics of being given one chance, starting acoustic then switching mid song to a fuller, electric crunch. Think Therapy? meets Promise Ring.
