DYLAN FLYNN & THE DEAD POETS
Whelan’s Upstairs – Wed 21st June 2023
Dylan Flynn and The Dead Poets make music for twenty-somethings living in a country that completely ignores them. The Indie up-and-comers have gained over 300,000 streams on Spotify, secured support slots with NewDad and Milk, and have played sold out shows around Ireland.
The 5-piece, who blend elements of Jangle-Pop and Alt-Rock, take influence from artists such as The War on Drugs, Bon Iver, Radiohead and The 1975. The band all met while at college in Limerick, Ireland, and use their music to delve into themes of loss, relationships, and mental health.
The Indie-Rock outfit have been quickly gaining recognition in the Irish music scene for their energetic live shows, and self-produced releases, which have been featured in Hot Press, Golden Plec and Indie Buddie. Their music has also been heard across major radio stations such as Today FM, Amazing Radio, RTE 2FM, and SPIN.
2022 was a big year, seeing the group release their sophomore EP and take on their first Irish tour, which saw them play dates in Clonmel, Galway, Dublin, concluding with their biggest show to date in Dolan’s Warehouse, Limerick.
Hot Press – “Every time I see this band live, I forget how spine-tinglingly fantastic they are.”
Indie Buddie – “Earnest songwriting teamed with bright hazy guitar refrains.”
