+ GIRLBAND & BOUTS
Spies are a Dublin based five piece outfit, Determined to create music that connects to whoever listens to it . “Marrying the sweeter elements of Interpol and The National, Singer Michael Broderick calls out in a soulful purr over militant drums and agitated guitars. Throw in a handful of truly gorgeous melodies and you’ve got a world class performance on your hands” – Hot Press. Having their sound described by Jim Carroll of The Irish Times as a “fine take on the far side of indie-pop” Spies have achieved quite a lot since their formation less than a year ago. With their debut EP, Liars Call Me King, receiving regular air play from Phantom Fm, 2FM and Today FM DJ’s including live sessions for Dan Hegarty and Paul Mcloone.
