CRISPR Kid are a newly formed Dublin based 4-piece guitar band who are set to release their first three track E.P. in December to promote their debut gig at The Soundhouse, Dublin on the 13th of the month.
Singer Pauric Sweeney and guitarist Phil Dobie first met at an afterparty on the island of Ibiza, and after initially entering into drunken dialogue over a mutual infatuation with the lush textural sounds of early REM, Verve 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 Brown allied with the pair in 2018, taking up duties on bass-guitar and piano and the line-up was completed with Brazilian drummer Rom Passos adding his hypnotic grooves in July of 2019.
