With an ethos of bringing good music back to the mainstream being the driving force behind “Make It Last”, The Continentals are following through with their intent. From the get-go this debut release doesn't falter with in-your-face electric guitar and an instantly endearing indie-rock vocal. “We’re the kids with dreams that last” sings front man Nate Donaghy and we believe it. This recurring sentiment will remain in listeners heads days after listening.
From Belfast, The Continentals are a five-piece indie rock n roll band who formed in May 2021 and they aim to emerge as one of 2022’s biggest upcoming bands. They certainly are in the running to back-up their bold claim with this excellent debut track.
The Continentals consist of James Bothwell (drums), the aforementioned Nate Donaghy (vocals), James Dawson (bass), Patrik Palko (lead guitarist and songwriter) and Ethan Lahye( rhythm guitar). “Make It Last” was recorded at Belfast’s Half Bap Studios and was produced by Graham Davidson whose credits include Robert Plant.
Taking influences from massive bands such as Nirvana, Oasis, The Who and The Undertones, this talented quintet have began their road to success by playing at The Voodoo Venue in Belfast and releasing this stellar first single.
