Birds of Olympus
Wicklow, County Wicklow
Following a string of successful SXSW showcases in Austin and several follow-up performances in Toronto for Canada Music Week, former Hybrasil frontman Spud Murphy is making waves once again with his latest musical incarnation, Birds of Olympus.
The group’s compelling mix of neo-psychedelia and transcendental electronica has been soundtracking acclaimed live performances for little over a year.
Highlights to date include: Supporting; Chaz Bundick Meets The Mattson 2, Jah Wobble, Lift to Experience; Music from Ireland Showcase (SXSW & CMW), headlining The Dublin Quays Festival and selling out Wicklow’s Parish Church for a special once off show.
The band’s debut single ‘Vine of the Soul’ was selected as an official promotional track for SXSW 2017 and has received continued airplay from BBC Radio 6, RTE Radio, and from various US tastemakers.
With their debut EP set to go the press at the end of this year, 2018 looks to be a promising year for Birds of Olympus.
