"There's a palpable energy there that's discernible" - Nialler9
"Effortless classic indie goodness" - JOE.ie
Initially having met as schoolmates in their hometown of Swords, North Dublin, Odd Morris would form years later in response to having obtained unfulfilling college degrees and to pursue something more. Their response, which boasts a brand of indie post-punk, has seen them rise steadily in Irish music acclaim.
Having withheld the release of any music online until March this year, Odd Morris earned a reputable name through their brooding live performances across the country alongside peers Fontaines D.C. and The Murder Capital. The release of their debut single ‘What Might Be’ premiered on Nialler9 and received high praise from Irish music journalists, contributing to the band being hailed by the BBC’s ‘Across the Line’ as the next ones to watch, as well as being named by The Irish Times as a new artist to love in 2019. Odd Morris have since taken their forthright and energetic set to support the likes of Fat White Family, FEET and Just Mustard and are set to play their debut festival at this years’ All Together Now and later at, Electric Picnic.
Having started the band to fill the individual void of meaningful expression, their collective endeavour is akin: to make their audience feel something.
