Stoneybatter, Clonsilla, County Dublin
Athens are a guitar driven band influenced by alternative rock, post rock, minimalist, and indie sounds. These combine behind songs and lyrics written by singer Alison Quigley and guitarist Chris Ledwidge.
We'll be releasing two EPs this year, scheduled for August and September 2018.
Alison and Chris met and began writing a couple of years ago, forming the band with other members on drums and bass. Various periods of time and life have passed and stalled our plans, those other members had to head to other ends of the planet and so we have reformed to release music this year. Some will be in band form, some will be as a duo.
