NYC meets Berlin meets West Cork.
Seeking to push the boundaries of the indie-rock genre the sound has a variety of color - reverb-drenched piano, distorted, squalling guitars, driving bass and muscular drums all punctuated by uncompromising German / English vocals.
Having played in bands for 20+ years in NYC (Toulouse, Poka Poka, The Blam) Reuben enters West Cork with a wall of noise.
Geraldine hails from Berlin and has long been song-writing and performing live music in many guises.
Tapping into his experience as a motion graphics director Jonathan brings his visual projections to the live shows, creating an immersive live experience.
Andrew is a recent graduate from BIMM music college in Dublin and brings his experience from local bands in West Cork
