Inspiration: Only Real
08 Oct 2013
RFB talks to Niall Galvin, aka Only Real, about the inspiration he draws from skateboarders, live sessions and space.
London-based psychadelic wordsmith, Only Real, aka Niall Galvin, has been wowing RFB with his bedroom produced beats and bashful lyricism for a long time now. His feel-good summer anthem 'Backseat Kissers' released just over a year ago on ASL Records turned into the soundtrack to a hazy summer spent winding between Olympic throngs and over-zealous volunteers and it's been an agonising wait since then for a more fully-fledged release.
But with a new EP Days In The City, released last week on Luv Luv Luv Records, we caught up with Niall to talk about the inspiration behind his DIY sound. It's every bit as eclectic as you'd expect,. Below, Niall talks RFB through the sources he draws upon for Only Real; live sessions, skateboarders and space.
