Bray / Newtownmountkennedy / Wicklow Town, County Wicklow
Formed in 2015, Wicklow-based alt-punks The Felonies have striven to define themselves as one of Ireland’s most exciting live acts. Taking inspiration from the re-emergence of distorted garage rock and post-punk, the band combines raw lyricism, harsh musicality and melodic hooks to carve their unique sound. This has given the band the opportunity to bring their thunderous live-set to some of Ireland’s most infamous venues and festivals, as well as lending support duties to bands such as Fontaines DC, TOUTS, Boy Azooga, Island and Vistas, on top of two consecutive years at Electric Picnic. Upon the release of their most recent singles, the band received widespread critical acclaim, and radioplay from the likes of BBC Ulster, RTÉ 2FM and 2XM, 8Radio and Dundalk FM (also including a coveted Studio 8 session with Dan Hegarty).
