The World

http://www.theworldmusic.info

Putting a label on The World is a challenge, although they loosely fit in the broad genre of indie rock, edging toward the pop sensibilities of U2 before they got too caught up in production to let their music actually stand on its own. Aside from a tribute to victims of the World Trade Center bombing, which samples the Kurayamino Mix of Rob Dougan’s Clubbed To Death (most known for its appearance in the first Matrix soundtrack), the music is straight guitar, bass, drums, and vocals blended in an emotional delivery with a not-quite-polished sound that is infectious with enough repetitive phrasing to be slightly entrancing. The band was awarded most promising new act by the European Music Journalists Association in 1999, continuing to soldier on as a force in the Dublin music scene. The Web site includes several tracks in both MP3 and Real formats, as well as a video for the song The Pick Axe in WMV and Real formats.
