FIRST CLASS & COACH
Whelan’s Upstairs • Fri 22nd March 2024
A four-piece band based in Ballydehob, West Cork, Ireland. Formed in 2017.
Debut album ‘The Truth About Honey’ released February 2020. Second album ‘NEON HIP’ released April 2023 on FIFA Records.
Seeking to push the boundaries of the indie-rock genre the sound has a variety of color… reverb-drenched piano, distorted, squalling guitars, driving bass and muscular drums, all punctuated by uncompromising German & English vocals.
‘West Cork’s best-kept musical secret’ – THE IRISH TIMES
“Utterly outstanding” – STEPHEN MCCAULEY, BBC SOUNDS
“I love them – one of my favourite Irish acts – back with another banger” – Ed Smith, TodayFM
“Everything they’ve released so far has been so, so impressive… anticipation will be sky-high” – DAN HEGARTY, 2FM
‘My Oh My’ voted number 2 in Singles of the Year 2022 RADIO NOVA, DUBLIN
“Geraldine Thomas fronts this west Cork rock outfit with a wail to rival the Kills’ Alison Mosshart. Squalling, distorted guitars mark a blistering opening salvo, before aggression and attitude give way to atmosphere” – STEVE CUMMINS, THE SUNDAY TIMES
‘My Oh My’ is “already for me, song of the year” – Ed Smith, TodayFM
“Brilliant, brilliant, brilliant” – DAN HEGARTY, 2FM
