The Depravations are a five piece indie/ folk/ pop band based in Galway City on the west coast of Ireland.
In 2010 they released the Mosey EP which received favourable reviews from such people as nialler9 (“An impressive debut”), Aoife Barry (“Gentle folky sounds with harmonies to swoon over”) and Barry Gruff (“One of the west of Ireland’s hidden treasures”).
Since then they have played HWCH three years in a row, the Whelan’s Ones To Watch Festival in 2012, the Hotpress Jagermeister Freezer Sessions, the FMC Tour and the Turning Pirate Mixtape New Years Eve Party (w/Jape, Neil Hannon, Cathy Davey and Lisa Hannigan).
