+ Trapped in a Cabin & Pharaohs
The Journals are an emerging four-piece from Dublin, they have been playing across the city since 2010 and have released several EPs, all of which were made free to download. Formed when schoolmates Alex Cummins (drums) and Ollie Moyles (guitar) began creating and covering songs in an attic, the band quickly added bassist Niall Thornton and guitarist Fergus Cahillane and began creating music and playing shows. After supporting Cashier No.9 in 2011, they were described as “a cross between The Pixies and The Stunning”. Currently working on a 3rd EP, they have since supported the likes of “Something Happens” in Whelans and “Movie Script Ending” in the Sugar Club. Their influences range from the soft, mellow vibes of Bon Iver, to the clamber of Manchester Orchestra.
