Musical brothers hoping the Price is right for big plans

by Rebecca Ryan

After a busy and successful 2018, Sean and Conor Price are about to bring brand-new music to their fans in 2019.

The Blessington brothers have been working hard over the past year and just released their first single of 2019, Storm.

The brothers say Storm is a youthful pop song about a girl who is exciting, but you know she is bad news, just like a ‘storm’.

Dublin Gazette caught up with Sean (19) and Conor (16) who told us more about the new single and how their music is taking a different direction.

“Storm is a pop song with catchy hooks and cool bass lines. Written by ourselves [Sean and Conor] with Conor O’Donohoe from Irish band, Wild Youth.

“It’s a fun, cool, mature pop song starting off a new direction for us in 2019.”

The brothers have been working with producers and writers in Dublin, London and Stockholm on their new music and are excited to show their fans.

“We have been doing a lot of writing, recording and gigging over the past year.

“We have worked with top-class producers and writers and have a great catalogue of new songs ready to release this year. We are really looking forward to the year ahead.

“On the X-Factor we were two inexperienced buskers riding the wave and enjoying ourselves.

“Now, in 2019, after a lot of learning over the past year or so, we have developed a cool pop sound that we really feel represents us.

“Now we are making music we really love and enjoying ourselves.”

Sean and Conor revealed they will be releasing an EP this year, “hopefully this Summer”, and they will also be hitting Dublin in June to play The Olympia Theatre.

“We can’t wait to play in The Olympia! It is one of Ireland’s most renowned venues and we have seen many of our favourite artists play there.

“We are so fortunate to have great audiences at our shows, but nothing beats a Dublin audience!

“There is just a buzz and energy that they bring. We have experienced this playing at the 3 Arena, Vicar Street and the Helix.”

So, what’s next on the agenda for the popular brothers?

“Next for us is lots of new exciting music [and] our 2019 tour, which is under way. We also plan to bring the tour to the UK later in the year.

“We are pretty excited about the music we have written and recorded for 2019 and there may be a few more exciting announcements to come during the year.”

Sean and Conor Price will play The Olympia Theatre, Dublin on Saturday, June 29. Full details of tour dates and tickets are available here.
