Cillian chats to Irish Indie Rock band The Academic.
Hailing from Mullingar, the Irish 4-piece have released ‘My Very Best’, the fourth and final single to be lifted from their forthcoming album and EMI debut Sitting Pretty.
On an album which packs storming stadium-ready choruses at every turn, ‘My Very Best’ pushes The Academic’s talent for refinement to the fore; with the percussive snap of 80s pop and the band’s eye for effervescent melodies providing the perfect vehicle for the subtleties of Craig Fitzgerald’s composed delivery.

Produced by Nick Hodgson (Mark Ronson, Dua Lipa) at London’s Snap Studios, Sitting Pretty is an album about navigating life in your 20s; the uncertainties and the ever-shifting sense of self.
Vocalist Craig and Bassist Stephen joined Cillian to chat about the new single, from modulation effects to a tribute to Ireland's matchmaking scene in their new music video.
While the lads also chat influences on the upcoming record Sitting Pretty which drops February 10th this year.
