Galway, County Galway
Eoin Dolan blends the sound of an endless summer with an easy going nostalgia to create a repertoire of surf/folk/pop songs that echo Brian Wilson, Syd Barrett and John Lennon. His song writing is steeped in the imagery and atmosphere of a vintage seaside town and his heart breaking melodies, reverb drenched vocals and gentle instrumentation call to mind some of the sadness and beauty of 1960s surf pop.
Eoin Dolan is a singer-songwriter and producer from Galway City on the west coast of Ireland. He released his well received debut EP ‘Placid Ocean’ in September 2014 and has since played a string of high profile gigs including the Breaking Tunes Music Trail, the Hard Working Class Heroes Festival and the MTV Crashes Cork Music Trail. In 2015 he joined independent record label Citóg Records, which put out his second EP ‘Something Good’ in February 2016. This was soon followed by the release of Eoin’s self-titled debut L.P in September of the same year. In the autumn of 2017 Dolan launched his second full-length album entitled UBIQUE. This was promoted with a nationwide tour of Iceland.
