Tramore, County Waterford
'A hugely promising debut'
'Expect to see them everywhere'
Shay Byrne, RTÉ Radio 1
TOUCAN are the explosive ten-piece funk-pop ensemble blasting out a blend of feel-good, heavy-on-the-brass, contagiously funky soul and pop music. With irresistible guitar licks, dazzling brass hooks, a tightly knit rhythm section and a silky-smooth vocal blend, the band serve up quite a sound.
After releasing their debut single, We Fell for Miles and their debut EP, they've racked up over 900,000 Spotify streams, been included in over 16,000 playlists, with huge listenership in the UK, the US and Australia.
They've seen coverage from The Irish Times, Hot Press Magazine, JOE.ie, The Thin Air and RTÉ 2fm. They were featured at Other Voices 2018, and finished their first year by playing a sell-out headline show to Waterford's Theatre Royal before a fully sold out UK & Ireland Spring Tour. After signing to Free Trade Agency in June 2019, they are now looking forward to a fully fledged summer schedule including performances at the Royal Albert Hall, Forbidden Fruit, Knockanstockan, Love Sensation, Kaleidoscope and many more.
