I really like Bouts, who recently released their second EP (more here). If their video for ‘Turn Away’ is any indication, they are already aiming for breaking markets beyond Irish shores. Taking their cues from Japanese businessmen (who my friend swears are the biggest partiers in the world) Bouts pull out the karaoke, with added subtitles so you can sing along, as long as you have fluent Japanese. Bouts are in the midst of an Irish tour to promote their EP. See the dates, including the Twister Pepper in Dublin tonight, here. Can’t wait to catch them in Plugd on April 7, supported by Terriers and Adultrock.
