WHAT Columbia Mills
WHEN 9pm
WHERE Live Lounge

Rising Irish five-piece, recommended.

The band's name comes from the legendary building based on Dublin’s Quays. In the early 90s the building became a mecca for the illegal rave scene bringing people together from all walks of life and all musical tastes. The diversity of music and social classes is something that has left a lasting impression on the city and has not since been rediscovered since Police put an end to the institution in an early morning raid. 

Based in Dublin and Wicklow in Ireland, the band have embraced the liberal ethos of the Columbia Mills era to both musical tastes and social equality. They have shaped their musical style with a guitar driven sounds and emphasis on electronic foundations. Having released two EPs to wide critical acclaim, their debut single ‘Never Gonna Look At You The Same’ was playlisted on Today FM and TXFM in Dublin and was also picked up by XFM in London. Their music has been described as dark, ambient, emotive but with an almost deep south sensibility.

Think Joy Division playing the Grand Ole Opry.
