City Victim

Galway, County Galway

Stuck between the want to move forward but the need to remain, City victim are the sounding board of a middle generation who don't quite know where they belong. City Victim's music unveils feelings of escapism, nostalgia, and anxiety, with a sound that echoes other artists such as Interpol, The Cure, and Beach Fossils.

City Victim is the result of a long term collaboration between Galway natives Adam Sheeran (The Followers of Otis/Eoin Dolan Band) and Kieran O'Brien (Solo Artist, member of Citog Records), two life long friends who grew up playing music together. Joining forces with Ciaran O Maolain on drums (Half Forward Line), and Wayne Foy on guitar (Field Trip).

To date the band have released 4 singles and two music videos. They have an EP recorded which they aim to steadily promote and release over the course of 2019.

Upon release they were greeted with very favourable reviews while also getting radio play on shows such John Barker's 98FM and the Irish Jam.

The band has worked with top names such as Fergal Davis, well renowned for producing albums for Muse, Republic of Loose, and O Emperor, as well as Geoff French, also a producer and drummer with bands incuding The Brilliant Things, Preachers Son, and The Follower of Otis.
