Cork/Sheffield/Leeds pop-punk/math-rock trio Ganglions are playing a few dates around Ireland this week – they’ve played Cork before, including at Quarter Block Party earlier this year, but this is their first proper tour, with dates coming up around England too. It’s all in support of their second EP, Thirsty, released on the Audacious Art Experiment. […]

The video for Bell X1’s ‘Sugar High’ was directed by Shane Delahunty, Eoin Brennan and Eoin Cody, part of the Folks and Folks collective. The track is from Bloodless Coup.

They hit Dolan’s Warehouse in Limerick on the Saturday and Brid O’Donovan was on hand to capture some of the […]
