Orchid Collective

Dublin, County Dublin

Orchid Collective are David O ‘ Shea, Shea Tohill , Hugh O’Neill and Darra Doyle each coming from four different corners of Ireland meeting in Dublin just under two years ago. Responsible for creating a rousing indie folk rock that would resonate with those who are fans of Alt -J, Fleet Foxes and Bon Iver with a touch of Explosions in the Sky. Through their own distinct use of vocal harmonies and searing layers of reverbed guitars; Orchid Collective make themselves known as a band that set themselves apart from their contemporaries, offering a bold new imagining of the indie genre.

Already finding themselves on playlists across RTE 2FM, RTE Radio One, getting spins on BBC Radio One as Phil Taggart's Future First, receiving wide radio airplay around Ireland and making it onto Spotify's Breath of Fresh Eire, Fresh Finds and Release Radar playlists. The future seems bright for Orchid Collective!

“ I love this. It’s the sound of a band that fully understand themselves and their music - glorious dreamy guitars, and vocals that gently grasp your attention and keep it. “ - Dan Hegarty (RTE 2FM)

"If you too have been missing the yearning atmospheric guitar fuelled lyricism of
Tyneside's 'Grand Father Birds' since their premature demise, may I commend you to Ireland's splendid Orchid Collective - Tom Robinson (BBC 6 Music)

“Full on light show, a ridiculously tight band!” - Phil Taggart (BBC Radio One)

“Really good song. A bit different from what I’ve previously heard from this band but in a really good way! "-Tony Clayton - Lea (Irish Times)

“ Regulars on the Irish Music Show,  ‘Orchid Collective’ provide a sense of calm in an otherwise turbulent world. ‘LAZY’ features glorious harmonies and a guitar sound that holds onto you until the end ” - Roddie Cleere (Hotpress DJ of the Year KCLR)

"The Irish band spread the gospel gig by gig, show by show, a never-ending catalogue of live dates that twists at home and abroad." - Clash Magazine

“ One of the best sets I saw at Hard Working Class Heroes earlier this month was from the Dublin-based four-piece Orchid Collective. “ - Nialler9

“ It’s powerful stuff. So powerful that you’d be surprised if this young band weren’t very big indeed in the not-too-distant future — not least because their sound in moments has echoes of Coldplay channelling Crosby Stills & Nash with bells and possibly whistles on.” - Barry Egan (Irish Independent)

''They make something very difficult sound very easy''- Jim Lockhart (Senior producer RTE/ Horslips)

''Sounds like a band at the start of something...a good start'' - Dave Fanning (RTE 2FM)

''WOW this is excellent!''- Roddie Cleere on Lay As Stone (Voted 2nd best DJ(after Dave Fanning) by Hotpress readers)

''a similarly rousing effort to previous singles including ‘Figure It Out’.''- The Thin Air

''Melding indie- pop hooks, alternative folk-tinged vocal harmonies and post rock-inflected grandeur, the sound of 'Lay As Stone' bodes very well for the groups future.''- The Last Mixed Tape

'' It's always a pleasure to find a gem of new Irish music in the State inbox.''- State.ie

''An act with massive potential.'' - Joe.ie

''If you like The Bombay Bicycle Club then you'll dig Orchid Collective'' - Adrian Phillips (TunAtheDay)
