Burglar

Alternative // Dublin, Dublin // Willow: She/Her Eduardo: He/Him

Burglar is an alternative rock duo based in Dublin, Ireland

Willow and Eduardo formed Burglar after meeting in college in 2021 and bonding over their love of alternative acts such as PJ Harvey and King Krule. Their backgrounds couldn’t be more different; Eduardo grew up around the punk rock scene in his hometown of Goiânia, Brazil, while Willow comes from the indie-pop scene in Dublin, with previous project Opal Lights bringing her to festivals such as Electric Picnic and Sea Sessions. However, their blend of inspirations has given Burglar a unique and addictive sound. Willow’s dissociative lyricism and Eduardo’s confessional style result in energetic and catchy songs with interchangeable vocal leads and omnipresent harmonic work, alongside distorted guitars and buzzing synths.

The duo have spent 2023 playing as many gigs on the Dublin circuit as possible with their live bassist and drummer, Cormac and Ben, and have gained a following within the scene. They have been applauded for their exciting live energy, with onlookers comparing them to influences anywhere from Fugazi, to Slint, to Bloc Party. They recently won a battle of the bands between Dublin's two most esteemed colleges Trinity and UCD, judged by representatives from Hot Press, MusicMaker, and the Royal Irish Academy of Music, taking home first place for Trinity. Their long-awaited debut single 'Nobody Needs to Know You're Desperate' was released on the 15th of March 2024, and their debut EP is in the works.
