One act on our must see list is five piece Dublin Indie-Rock band, Silverbacks. The group consists of lead singer Daniel, Peadar and Killian who play guitar, Emma who plays the bass and Gary, the drummer of the band. Established in 2011, the band started out as a group of friends who used the band as a side project to their college music degrees. After releasing a home recorded album in 2014 entitled Hot Bath, they started to gain recognition and successfully stood out from the crowd.

The band has a style that is similar to that of Sonic Youth and The Black Keys and their official EP entitled Sink the Fat Moon is available on iTunes now.

Tickets: To Be Announced

4) Wild Youth

Next in line is Dublin-based Rock band, Wild Youth. The four-piece consists of David Whelan (vocals and guitar), Conor O’Donohoe (vocals and keyboard), Ed Porter (vocals and guitar) and Callum McAdam (drums). Conor and David were musicians and best mates who teamed up with the other members in 2016 to form what is now Wild Youth. The band set to work penning tunes immediately and released their début single, All or Nothing in May this year. They have performed at some of the biggest music festivals in Ireland such as Sea Sessions and Longitude and there is no doubt they will have plenty more to come. The world is their oyster so watch this space.

In terms of sound, they can be compared to that of The Script with a touch of One Republic, their first music video stars Keith Duffy’s son so first impressions are glowing. All or Nothing is available to download on iTunes now.
