Dublin, County Dublin

CRISPR Kid are a Dublin based 4-piece indie guitar band who recently exploded onto the Irish music scene with their debut E.P. 'Fresno Rescue Mission' in December 2019.

A blistering debut gig at The Sound House, Dublin coincided with the E.P's release and the band were tipped in The Irish Daily Star as 'one's to watch' for 2020.

After a triumphant Whelan's 'Ones To Watch 2020' performance, CRISPR Kid play their first headline show at Lost Lane, Dublin on 31st January.

Singer Pauric Sweeney and guitarist Phil Dobie first met at an after party on the island of Ibiza, and after initially entering into drunken dialogue over a mutual infatuation with the lush textural sounds Verve, early REM and Sigur-Ros, decided they simply had no option but to begin collaborating after a random, one-in-a-million chance encounter in Dublin.

The universe had spoken...and CRISPR Kid were born.

Multi-instrumentalist Stephen Browne allied with the pair in 2018 taking up duties on bass-guitar and occasional piano and the line-up was completed with Brazilian drummer Rom Passos adding hypnotic grooves in July of 2019.
