His Father’s Voice are a four piece outfit from Limerick City. The band effortlessly blur the lines between new wave, post-punk and shoegaze through soaring melodies, unflinching guitars and moody muscular rhythms. Broodingly introspective yet danceable, the band is in constant negotiation with a well-yielded tension as shown in their debut EP 'Context and Perspective' and follow-up single ‘In the Shade’. These releases garnered a new found reputation which led to a number of opportunities; including a set on the Rankin’s Wood stage at Electric Picnic 2019 and support slots with high-profile acts such as Viagra Boys and Cherry Glazerr.
The band eased their way back into performing live in 2022 by playing Irish headline shows and supporting the likes of Silverbacks, Junk Drawer and Skinner. The band also played Whelan’s Ones to Watch 2023 and featured in the award nominated (Irish Film London) documentary ‘Out of Place’ by Féile na Gréine, which toured Ireland throughout February 2023. In 2022 the band recorded their debut album with Mícheál Keating (Bleeding Heart Pigeons). The first single from the album is due for release in summer 2023, prior to the album release in early 2024.

"... A calm, methodical, brooding vibe... Lulling the audience in with a set of thick, murky basslines and gloomy percussion." - Chord Blossom
