Dublin, County Dublin
From forming initially to play at house parties to being hailed as "Dublin math-rock revival" (Nialler9), Tribal Dance have quickly captured the attention of national/international music blogs and radio stations due to their energetic, intense and dramatic live performances.
Influenced by a wide range of musical ideas from artists such as Radiohead, Miles Davis, BadBadNotGood and The Silents, their songs explore explore the boundaries of music genres while still maintaining core elements of their unique sound.
Their debut single “Flongo” released in August 2017, sent out waves of excitement and received extremely positive reviews from music blogs and nationwide newspapers as well as national and international radio play, which contributed to a sold out single release show. The band have been showcased in Whelan's Ones to Watch along with headlining a special Nialler9 showcase The Button Factory as well as unforgettable performance to a packed tent at KnockanStockan 2018.
“What impresses most about Tribal dance is how perfectly in sync each member is. Their dance fused math rock leaves very little room for error. One missed beat or note and the whole thing would start to crumble. Such was their performance, they was virtually no chance of this happening.”

The band's sophomore release “And Then All That Was Left Was A Physician And A Silhouette” is set to be the first release on Bad Soup Records in December 2018, accompanied with an intense and dramatic music video, a limited edition physical release.
Tribal Dance have been working on multiple releases (including a collaboration with Ben Bix of Meltybrains? and Sim Simma) planned for 2019 and intend on making a mark on the music and creative scene at home and abroad.
"Relying on intricate guitar notes, garage-rock vocals, and interlocked percussion, the song is a reminder of playing fast and anything but loose" - The Irish Times.
"Flongo’ is this Dublin trio’s debut single and features the rhythmic tautness of early Foals with a bassline in a rush to the finish." - Nialler9.
"Flongo combines rapid rhythmic drumming that you associate with Adebisi Shank with the precise fret work of Foals and some urgent post punk yelping. It’s a sweaty, thrilling tune and signals Tribal Dance as ones to keep an eye on." - Goldenplec

One missed beat or note and the whole thing would start to crumble. Such was their performance, they was virtually no chance of this happening." - GoldenPlec
"The crowd surged to the front moshing, pushing and swaying lapping up every moment, as the vocals scream and wail over the fluctuant upbeat rhythms, darkly hued sour riffs and thumping basslines. With these guys when the tunes are sweet and mellow its glorious and woozy and when they are heavy it’s a mind blowing, shredding onslaught."
