“…a new force to be reckoned with.” – Kerrang! KKKK

Singular Artists proudly present New Pagans’ return to Dublin for their headline show at Whelan’s Upstairs on 1st November 2023. Tickets available from

New Pagans are a rock band based in Belfast, Northern Ireland. As the music industry fights to return from the brink, New Pagans abandon chaos for a brief moment, in search of hope. Making Circles of Our Own is a glorious listen, incisive, inspiring, and uplifting. Ultimately, the album details the journey to self-assurance, deftly led by singer and wordsmith Lyndsey Mcdougall, whose transportive lyrics demand instant repeat listens.

New Pagans’ critically acclaimed debut album, The Seed The Vessel, The Roots and All was a self-reflective and self-critical release. Instead, Making Circles of Our Own is more poised, curious and outward-looking, but not without its own moments of angry power. Focusing on the societal limits placed on age and gender, the album is a strong statement of intent from the group, recalling elements of Pixies, PJ Harvey, and Quicksand.

Making Circles of Our Own is New Pagans’ successor to the globally-lauded debut The Seed, The Vessel, The Roots and All (March 2021, Big Scary Monsters), which received acclaimed from Stereogum, Kerrang!, The Independent, NPR and more, and led to tours with Skunk Anansie and Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls.
