Tuam, County Galway
Since the October 2012 release of debut single "Boys Walk Faster Than Girls", Strange Boats have remained in heavy rotation on Irish indie radio, found themselves taking to the stage at the Olympia Theatre, Dublin & Mandela Hall, Belfast, while the band ended the year by winning best POP/ALT band of 2012 at the Music Review Unsigned Awards.
Hailing from the self-sufficient, music soaked, song in your pocket town of Tuam in the West of Ireland, the four-piece are set to release their debut album 'Gnome' in July 2013.
"Falling in the same vein as alt-rock duo Japandroids, Strange Boats make it very apparent that they have the ability to capture nostalgia and give it a modern sound, all without being too retro.." - Tori Olson - SOUND AND MOTION
"The four-piece create a unique blend of harmonic rock-tinged tunes layered on a foundation of punk.." - Dwayne Woods - IRISH DAILY STAR
