Columbia Mills Return with a New Single ‘Heart of a Nation’

March 16, 2022

Columbia Mills announces the release of their new single ‘Heart of a Nation’. ‘Heart of a Nation” is the title track and first single from their third album scheduled for release in September this year. The single is due out Friday, 18th March 2022. 

Speaking about ‘Heart of a Nation’ lead singer Fiachra Treacy said: 

“Heart of a Nation” documents the housing crisis in Ireland, with each verse tackling a different aspect of the problem.  From a mother sleeping with her children in a Garda station to the crooked businessmen and politicians that have caused the housing crisis in Ireland.  Heart of a Nation peels back the political rhetoric and looks at the real people affected when the ruling class looks out for themselves.

Described by John Kennedy (Radio X) as Ireland’s answer to The National. Columbia Mills are regulars at festivals such as Indiependence, Longitude, and Electric Picnic and have supported world-class acts like Ride, Public Service Broadcasting, and Palace. On top of this, they have also toured Ireland & the UK with a string of headline shows at venues such as Whelans, King Tuts, and Sebright Arms.

Their mission statement is to merge electronica, dance, and pop while fostering a spirit of inclusion always evident at the long-gone club “Columbia Mills’ in Dublin’s docklands from where they took their name.

Constant musical development has marked the journey of Columbia Mills since the band’s inception. The band has released two critically acclaimed albums to date. ‘A Safe Distance to Watch’ and ‘CCTV’.
