SOLDIERS CAN’T DANCE

https://www.facebook.com/SoldiersCantDance

Soldiers Can’t Dance are one of the country’s most exciting young indie bands. Marked as “ones to watch” following performances in Dublin’s most well known music venues, Soldiers Can’t Dance have also provided support to ASIWYFA during their sell-out Irish “Gangs” tour and just performed on RTE’s Two Tube. With a distinctive and energetic sound, this is one band you just have to see live.

DONAL QUINN

https://www.facebook.com/DonalQuinnArtist

Unique and wonderfully 80’s retro. Like to front man Morrissey, Donal has a certain magic that encourages melodic and powerful lyrics. Up beat and yet touches of melancholy.

Donal is regularly played on RET 2xm, LMFM, NOVA FM, and NEAR FM. RTE 2XM has also played tracks off the EP subsequently. LMFM, NOVA, NEAR FM as he burns a hole into the Dublin Music Scene.
