The concept behind 1000 Beasts is simple; one artist takes the incredible talent that surrounds him and nurtures collaborations to produce fresh music greater than the sum of its parts.
Founded by “Cian”, a well-established freelance musician, pianist and producer in his own right who has toured internationally and worked at the highest level in his native Irish music industry and abroad, 1000 Beasts is an electro-pop project collaborating with different acts and artists (“The Beasts”) on every release.
Launching their social media campaign with the incredible ‘30//06//17’ series of teaser material, including a fast-paced adrenaline filled trailer (https://www.instagram.com/p/BUy0osElI9w/), and with artists such as Ryan O’Shaughnessy, Janet Grogan, Travis Is A Tourist & Larks promised for future releases, it might just be worth keeping an eye on 1000 Beasts.
Their debut single, “Wonderland (feat. Briony)”, accompanied by a highly original “meta” music video premiered by none other than Nialler9, was released on the 30th June 2017 and not long after it's posting to Facebook achieved a viral status, amassing 300+ shares in the first twelve. Off the back of this 1000 Beasts have been added to RTE Radio and local radio playlists.
Catch 1000 Beasts at Hard Working Class Heroes 2017 in The Grand Social at 8pm on Friday the 29th September alongside great Irish acts like Daithi & Le Boom.

Lacing the single with electronic grooves and some smouldering soul and rn'b pop sounds, it's a highly addictive and laid-back affair and a new video is less than a week away.
This is great, some electronic R&B chillout vibe to the track, a bit like Bonobo’s softer side.
1000 Beasts is less a classical project and more of an intriguing electro-pop one with the idea being that each song in the series will feature a different vocalist.
One of the most inventive and exciting acts to come out of Cork recently, ambient electronic act 1000 Beasts released his single 'Got This Feeling' last week which featured on our last Irish playlist. The track features pop solo act Ryan O'Shaughnessy, and the two styles are blended together sublimely, on first listen you will enjoy the song, and with every listen after that you'll find yourself more and more reaching for it. The chorus is both musically and vocally invigorating, with everything in the lead up a proper tease toward heightened enjoyment.
A tasty track.
Unexpected collaborations are often the best kind
Sonically, it goes from a chill Chet Faker to more of a Bonobo inspired release.
