The best live band in Ireland are coming back to Cork next month. Le Galaxie are playing the Pavilion on March 16 – that’s one day before St Patrick’s Day, calendar counters! Their live shows are among the most raucous around at the best of times, so what they’re going to be like then is […]

It’s been an incredible 18 months for Le Galaxie, from the release of their debut album to one of the most talked about acts after this year’s Electric Picnic. With two pre-Christmas shows at the Workman’s Club selling out in about a week – the first in one day – I talked to Dave McLoughlin, […]

One of my favourite songs of the year gets a Point Break-inspired video. Obviously it’s pretty great. The video was directed by Mark Duggan and features on Le Galaxie‘s recently released Fade 2 Forever EP, which you can listen to after the jump.
