Exiles launch their new single, Rearview Mirror, at Whelan’s on Friday 22nd February 2019 at 8pm.

Rearview Mirror was produced by Michael Heffernan (Dermot Kennedy, Chasing Abbey, Gavin James, The Script, The Coronas) and sees the Carlow musician-producer duo Jack O’Flaherty and Darragh O’Connor modernise their previous synth-wave sound to make one of the most sophisticated pop songs to come out of Ireland in a very long time.

With a gigging roster beginning in February and an arsenal of new songs ready to take them all the way through to festival season, 2019 is set to be a big year for this band from Ireland’s south-east who have developed a knack for fusing genres to produce decadent pop songs with hints of atmospheric nostalgia that hark back to their influences, which range from St. Lucia, Fenech-Soler and Fleetwood Mac to Talking Heads, Bell X1 and Arctic Monkeys.

There is a confidence about their music that comes from an obsession with their craft, innate talent and a mission to embrace contradictions, with Hot Press Magazine anticipating, “Everyone might want a piece of these guys soon.”
