Bray, County Wicklow
Formed in 2015, The Felonies have gone from strength to strength establishing themselves as one of Ireland's most exciting bands. Having spent much of 2015 crafting their take on Alternative Rock, the band released their debut EP, 'Impossible, Impractical' drawing immediate attention from industry heads and fans alike. Upon gigging consistently through 2016 the band were chosen for the Searchlight Development Deal in September where they spent the next five months in live pre-production in The Button Factory, while also recording new material in Temple Lane Studios.
So far in 2017, The Felonies have released 3 successful single's ('Repetition', 'Perfect Lie' and 'Drunk (3AM)'), garnering a substantial amount of radio play on RTÉ 2FM, and taken their revamped live set to some of Ireland's most infamous venues on their debut Irish Headline Tour, including gigs in Whelan's Main Room, Roisín Dubh, Fred Zeppelins, a headline set at Park Fest, and a coveted set at Electric Picnic upon winning RTÉ 2FM's Play The Picnic competition. The Felonies intend to spread their loud and fast sound to the masses and do so through their high energy live performances; they are not an act to be missed out on.
Pure M Magazine; “The Felonies are focused on perfecting their music, and it is truly paying off. They will get bigger and bigger and will be another great band coming from Ireland. And more heads will be turning in their direction”.
DublinConcerts.ie; “’Impossible, Impractical is’ full of belting indie tunes and pulsing rock anthems…how finely can a band have curated their sound in such a short space of time? Well, The Felonies blow our pre-conceptions out of the water with their brilliant melding of indie rock and hard rock...it’s amazing to see such a young band have such finesse to their sound, it’s powerful and focused, and everything that music should be”.
Musician.ie; “The single is brimming with Brit Indie goodness, an addictive bass line and anecdotal lyric “Repetition” and proves why Felonies already have a loyal fan base and caught the ear of the music industry.”
