INSIDEAWAVE are a five-piece indie band based in Dublin. Since forming in 2017 their work has been drawing both influence and recognition from an array of sources. Their debut release Estuary/Enough was self recorded and produced in Black Gate Studios. Following their win of Nova Discovered, a competition run by Radio Nova aimed at finding the best in Irish unsigned music, they began recording their sophomore effort Matchsticks/ Nick Francisco which was released in October 2018.
Their latest single Organ, co-produced by Cormac Butler (All Tvvins, Kodaline, True Tides, Alex & Echoes) represents a significant change of direction in the bands sound, veering towards more synth based dream-pop.
Scootah Tunes heralded it as a benchmark for the band's "incredible creativity, instrumental ability, and production skills." The track as described by Hotpress sees the band "sharpen their sound, honing in on the melodic production and ballad-oriented indie songwriting of their past work", while JOE.ie called it a "classy production from a band who are clearly on the up."
Festival appearances at Whelan's 'Ones to Watch' and Forbidden Fruit have given INSIDEAWAVE a new platform to share their music and play their part in an ever-changing Irish music scene.
