Hot on the heels of his debut single, Waster, which sold out in Rough Trade shops and received over 40,000 views online, in addition to support and acclaim from RTÉ 2FM, The Irish Times, 98FM, 8 Radio and Hot Press, the Innocent Bystander returns with a spiky slice of irresistible guitar pop entitled Electrocute with an accompanying video shot in Cork city by Southern Man Films.

The Innocent Bystander is an alias for Dublin-based producer/songwriter Mark Healy. Mark began his career with The Josephs, and has collaborated with Jerry Fish and the Mudbug Club, Carol Keogh, and Elevens; performed with Madness, Wayne Kramer (MC5), and Clem Burke (Blondie); and composed the original score for a short film entitled Nuts by Trainspotting author Irvine Welsh (2008). 

The Innocent Bystander is Mark's first solo outing and grew out of Mark’s ambition to “make guitar music that takes nothing from the blues”.

The Innocent Bystander explores isolation and distance – but never in a morose manner and is constantly animated by a righteous anger at the cruelties of modern life, and a passion for music's endless possibilities.
