Columbia Mills are an Indietronica band based in Dublin, Ireland. The band comprises of five permanent members, each adding an extra layer to their sound. In the two years the band has been together they have released two EPs to wide critical acclaim.

Their debut single ‘Never Gonna Look At You The Same’ was play listed 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

With two sold out shows in Dublin under their belt the band took the festival scene in Ireland by storm culminating in their headline slot on the Salty Dog stage at last year’s Electric Picnic. Their live performances are emotionally charged and the combination of live instruments and electronic beats and synths make for a unique experience. They don’t hide behind their massive sound and when all is stripped back the listener will always find a song to permeate the heart and head. Columbia Mills have just finished recording their debut album with Rob Kirwan (Hozier, U2, Depeche Mode) in what was a match made in heaven.
