Super Hanz at The Workman’s Club – Review and Photos

Super Hanz

Super Hanz took to the stage in The Workman’s Club on Friday, the 30th of August.

Throughout the night they played both old and new songs to please both sets of fans, those being new and those who have stuck with them from the start.

As they performed in front of a jam packed audience, the plucking of lead singer Stephens guitar filled every inch of the venue and rocked it to its core. As the bass rumbled through your body, you got a slight feeling as though you were one with the band.

It was fairly obvious from looking around the venue that the launch of their second EP “One Won Seven” was a complete success and on a day where most of Dublin was heading off to Electric Picnic, it was a joy to see the venue full to the brim.

“The Low” which is personally one of my favourite tracks from their latest EP, being perfectly executed on the night with Stephens smooth vocals which at times have a certain grittiness makes the track unforgettable and a definite mood booster.

“All I’ve Ever Known” and “Illogical” are a change into a more mellow and relaxed vibe as it’s performed on stage. Both songs are heavily instrumental at times which add to the beauty and power of the tracks.

With each track, the tones and harmonies create a beautiful atmosphere to the show as each song flows into the next. Although Super Hanz are fairly new to the music scene, they seem to have a certain maturity about them in both performing in front of an audience and in their talent for writing some extremely well written songs.

The Super Hanz EP launch was a memorable night and they are ones to watch out for over the next couple of months.

Support came from The City Apples who were to say the least, absolutely electric. Lead singer James gave 110% and these four lads were something special and rocked everyone to their core.

Greg Clifford also supported and performed a wonderful acoustic set.
