Named as one of the top Irish acts of 2016 by The Last Mixed Tape, 2FM’s Dan Hegarty, and Nialler9, and tipped for greatness in 2017 by The Irish Times, GoldenPlec, and The Point of Everything – This Dublin-based 4-piece are not to be missed!

“The in-yer-face appeal of songs like ‘Gentle Kind of Lies’ and the jarring emotion of most recent single ‘Bear’ are partly why Barq are so on the button; but above all of this, it’s their raw power that shines through. Reverberating guitars and the strength of vocalist Jess Kav add weight to their already emotive lyrics. Barq have clearly landed on their sound.” – Hotpress Magazine

“”The sound Barq are creating is unique: a tough-as-they-come mash with elements of hip-hop, jazz, r’n’b and funk rubbing shoulders with rock and pop.” – Irish Times

“Roaring guitars and a haunting, hypnotic vocal” – Wonderland Magazine

“Emotional and hard-hitting” – Dork Magazine

“Embodies a sense of drama and emotional evocation” – Stereogum

“A sharply defined melodic affair” – Clash

Harbouring Oceans are a Kilkenny-based five-piece alternative pop / art rock outfit, formed in December 2015.

“Harbouring Oceans are on the cusp of stardom… Get ready to be impressed” – Hotpress Magazine.

Drawing heavily from genres outside their rock foundations, the sound of Harbouring Oceans is characterised by close harmony, deep rhythmic grooves and soulful vocal melodies. Hip-hop and electronica are also strong features in the band’s sonic signature. This dynamic sound ranges from quiet, almost ambient territory to squalls of thunderous noise!
