The Innocent Bystander unveil ‘Neon Lights’

From drinking pints of Gin with Shane McGowan and midnight jamming with Primal Scream, to Christmas parties with Kylie Minogue, Mark Healy has always felt The Innocent Bystander in the middle of all this madness, resulting in him creating the band to match the bizarre situations he found himself in. 

Hot on the heels of his debut single ‘Waster’ – sold out from Rough Trade shops and included in their ‘Recommended Singles Of 2017’ – and ‘Electrocute’ (Irish Times ‘Single Of The Week’), The Innocent Bystander returns with a spiky slice of irresistible guitar-based electro pop ‘Neon Lights’.

The Innocent Bystander grew out of Mark’s ambition to make “guitar music that takes nothing from the blues”.  The music explores themes of isolation and distance – but is never morose, animated as it is by the righteous anger at the cruelness of modern life, and a passion for the endless possibilities of using music to talk about them.
