Today XS Noize is very excited to premiere the video for ‘Oh, La’ from Dublin’s alternative rock four-piece MYTH.
Drummer Tiarnán explains: The theme of ‘Oh, La’ is about living with anxiety and depression and how it affects your goals, personal life and that constant fight you have to do to try and keep your head above water. In the video, we represented the song’s 3 main emotions by wearing the masks to represent them, which are, Sadness, anger and despair.
The video’s whole idea is our singer Alex running from those thoughts instead of confronting them, and each time she runs, they become worse, and it gives them more power. The more she tries to escape from them, the more isolated she becomes. Then the only way she can overcome this is actually to recognise the problem in front of her and once she can do that the dark thoughts/emotions will stop chasing her and she can begin to confront them.”

MYTH is a four-piece alternative rock band from Dublin. Their music consists of low-end rhythmic harmonies, fat- backbeats and haunting vocal melodies. They draw inspiration from artists of all genre & this can be heard within their sound, which is a mixture of Jefferson Airplane, The Cranberries, Fleetwood Mac & Paramore.
In 2017 they released their debut single Idiots/Savages and sold out their first-ever headline show in The Workman’s Club. The bands second single Stacy, released in the same year, was featured as “Track of the Week” by HotPress and Joe. i.e. as well as receiving some radio play on RTÉ 2fm. The band continued to produce new music in 2018 and began recording for their first EP Self titled “MYTH”.
Another milestone, the band, reached that year was pre-selling out one of Dublin’s most Iconic live music Venues “Whelan’s”. This helped generated considerable interest within the Irish music scene, they played at some of Ireland’s top music festivals and were asked to perform at Whelan’s “Ones To Watch 2019”. They have also attracted interest from several UK booking agents. MYTH finished out 2019 on a high by unleashing a taste of their full potential to a packed house at Dublin’s Underground venue. Currently, the band are in the process of recording their highly anticipated debut album. They are working with national and international promoters to announce some more live dates soon.
