Dark Isle project

Alternative // Dublin, Dublin // They

Dark Isle formed in 2020, born out of a long-term collaboration between three friends in Dublin and Barcelona: JP Coakley (lead vocalist), John Donnelly and Diarmuid Ryan (guitar, bass, keyboards and backing vocals)

A home-produced collection of music, set to be released throughout 2022, spans a bridge of genres from indie rock, electronica to techno to punk, and much in between. From a simple guitar grows weird and wonderful sonics with beats to push you around.

We live in a dark place with glimpses of light. Songs about Love, Loss & Identity. Always about our lives. Dark Isle is eternal for the times we live in. The music could be electronic, dance or indie, but you might catch granny whistling along between pills.

Dark Isle’s music is real but also full of hope. We’re not running from anything. That’s a new kind of battle. I think we’re more interested in signing up for the resistance than starting a war.

Currently working on need songs for EP out in May 2024
