Emily, Lorcán, Joe, Niamh and Seán found themselves coming together as a group in 2011, drawn to each other by their love of music.
It’s clear from their music that this band is made up of five extremely different people. Pouring blood, sweat and tears into the band, rehearsals became something of a showdown. Niamh regularly broke drumsticks and Joe snapped guitar strings by the dozen, while Emily and Lorcán pulled their hair out perfecting their song writing ability. But all this desperate energy, along with their newest member, Seán on saxophone, has fused to create one of Dublin’s most exciting – and unique – new bands.
While the sound is not strictly punk, the band is directly inspired by it's energy; this is especially evident in their live shows.
Playing at Electric Picnic, Knockanstockan, No Place Like Dome and Rhythm & Roots music festival in 2012 and a variety of popular music venues throughout Dublin, along with airplay on various radio stations, including a live session on RTE 2fm's prestigious 'Dan Hegarty Sessions', Bamboo Party are the band to watch out for in 2013!
Bamboo Party launched their EP ‘Zorilla’ under their own label 'Divekick Records' in the Grand Social, Sat 9th June 2012. They are currently working with Dublin based independant label 'Putting Out Records' and are set to release with them in 2013.
