banríon is a four-piece Dublin based indie-rock band.
Their music pairs a jangly indie rock sound with soft lyrics about songwriter Róisín's experience of disability, love and loss, set in the ever changing city they are all cursed to love.
They established themselves "as one of the most thrilling new forces in Irish indie-rock" according to Hot Press with their first release - the self recorded and produced EP ‘airport dads’ in 2020.
The EP was critically acclaimed with reviews from Nialler9, Hot Press, The Thin Air and landed banríon a support slot on Pillow Queens Irish tour.
Róisín Ní Haicéid continued with the banríon project throughout the pandemic. 'Do You Miss Her' was written as a songwriting project with fellow Dublin musician qwasi, which "indicates a new direction for her work, taking on queer lyricism and dreampop tones" - GCN.
She recently released 'End Times' as a single. "Her growth as an artist is effortlessly on show with the single's softer sound" - Hot Press
Back again as a unit in the post-covid era, the band are currently in the process of recording their second EP, due for release early this Autumn.
