Dublin, County Dublin
MUNKY are an alternative rock band mixing disco grooves with grungy psych guitars. Their music is funky and furious, drawing influences from 70's disco and funk, 90's alt-rock and modern day psychedelia to produce their distinct sound. Their live shows have created a word of mouth buzz for their energy and quality.
Since emerging onto the scene in 2017, MUNKY have played Whelan’s Ones To Watch twice, opened for acts such as Le Galaxie, The Hot Sprockets and Raglans, been picked by Hot Press as one of the must see BIMM acts, played in Aviva Stadium and at festivals including Longitude festival, YS festival & Electric Picnic. Their first headline show sold out the main room of Whelan's and garnered high praise in reviews. They followed this up with their '7am' single launch selling out 2 nights in Whelan's. The lads are still puzzled by how this happened.
In 2018 they toured the UK and Ireland with Crazy Town, spending the winter working on their debut EP, Un, Deux, Trois, Cat which was released on April 2nd to positive reviews from UK and Irish blogs, and getting 10k streams in just 4 days from release.
