Royal Republic, the H-Blockx and the Toten Hosen brought this trio from Dublin into their supporting programme because of the success of their debut album "White Collar Lies". Now, two years later, Kopek and their successor "Rise" confirm their urge for grooving, untamed rock, fully in three-minute format and radio compatible. "Rise" is full of predictable high-gloss skirt without corners and edges, which has its best moment with the reserved and touching "Light Up My Room".
