Dublin-based band Mongoose is a musical melty-pot, combining the vocals, instrument-playing and song-crafting abilities of four women - Molly O'Mahony, Ailbhe Dunne, Muireann Ní Cheannabháin and Cara Dunne.
Their music is an amalgamation of styles, with nods to artists as diverse as Joni Mitchell, Fleetwood Mac and Beyoncé. All four members are songwriters, which allows for an ever-evolving soundscape. Their debut self-titled album, released in May 2015, is testament to this. This harmony-lead collection incorporates everything from from hard-edged indie pop and delicate folk to aching ballads and playful tales of love lost.
Celebrated for their live performances in particular, they have made memorable appearances at numerous festivals around Ireland and abroad, including Other Voices, Body & Soul, Longitude and Electric Picnic since their formation in 2012.
Their latest single 'Old Friend' is from their upcoming EP, due for release Autumn 2017.
