Rush, County Dublin
2013 will be a break out year for Familiar Creatures. Their music is up-tempo and filled with the magical trumpet lines of one-girl brass section Jessie Barnard. The vocals, sung by Irish front man, Brian Kelly, are a powerful and refreshing tonic to the overcooked sounds of the indie folk/rock scene. Jay Ramsurrun (Lead Guitar) delivers classy riffs, while the rhythm section of Muiris O Donnchu (Keys), Arwyn Davies (Bass) and Dan Jenkinson (Drums) dish out solid, eclectic, grooves.
Despite their recent beginnings, the Creatures' curious, danceable sound has already landed them on the playlists of BBC 6 and BBC London. As well as playing regularly across London, the band also featured at last year’s Hard Working Class Heroes Dublin, celebrating the best in new Irish music. Further festival slots followed, including 2013's Vantastival, Galtres, Castlepalooza, Keynsham World Music and Curious Yellow Weekender festivals - among others.
The Creatures’ goal is to attract management and booking agency interest, with a view to lining up a full gig and festival schedule for the 2013.
