Portumna, County Galway
BogBodies are Dan Maher and friends. The Galway based alt/folk rockers who thrilled audiences this summer with blistering sets at the Doolin Folk Festival, and Vantastival, have just released their debut single and music video for their track 'Blowing Out'.
'Blowing Out' was mixed by music industry titan Mike Hedges (The Cure, The Undertones, U2), after he saw Maher play a show on the Mediterranean island of Gozo in 2018, where Maher had been working as an archaeologist and crafting his song writing.
The official Music Video which was a collaborative effort with PetterPictures, was shot over two days on a show-string budget, it received over 20,000 Facebook video views in its first week, and yes, that cliff jump sequence is genuine!
The debut Album is set for release in May of 2020, with two more single/video releases to come beforehand.
"Great song writing, catchy choruses." Mike Hedges, legendary music producer. ( The Cure, The undertones, U2, Manic Street Preachers.)
"New Irish Heavy folk." Kenneth Kenny, White Horse Session's, Lahinch.
"Christy Moore meets Rage Against the Machine." Jimmy Coughlan, Doolin Folk Festival, 2019.
