Chasing Abbey are a dance pop trio from Ireland who have honed their artistic talent to create a uniquely Chasing Abbey sound, achieved only by combining the group's pool of talent with each member being a multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and producer.
More recently, Chasing Abbey have revisited their roots as Irish traditional music musicians and are pioneering a new genre of music - 'Trad House' - where they re-imagine and rework centuries old Irish traditional songs and fuse them with their distinctive dance pop sound.

After the success of their debut single, "Honeysuckle Daydream," Still Blue has quickly made a name for themselves in the Irish indie scene. Their unique sound, led by vocalist Nicole Lyons, Ruairi Forde on guitar, and Greg Kearns on drums, has caught the attention of many music lovers and critics alike and have been added to the 2FM Rising list of 'Irish musical acts to watch.' Still Blue has produced, recorded, and mixed all their music themselves, showcasing their skills as an up-and-coming indie band. Their influences include The 1975 and Arctic Monkeys, and their intimate lyrics are inspired by the writings of Phoebe Bridgers and Julia Jacklin.
Aonair is establishing themselves as one of Ireland's most exciting and promising acts at the moment. Their sound combines lush 80s inspired electronic production with rich reverbs, huge drum sounds and soaring vocal melodies to create a dreamy but powerful sound.
Aonair takes inspiration from staple acts such as Tears for Fears, The Blue Nile and Flock of Seagulls, combining it with the modern production style of The 1975, War on Drugs and Sam Fender. This maximalist wall of sound is complimented by their exciting and invigorating live performances.
Their 2022 sophomore EP ‘Loveheart Birthmark’, was an introduction to the bands epic sound, championed by tastemakers like The Guardian, Nialler 9, BBCNI, The Last Mixtape and more. This 80s-alt pop outfit are dubbed for huge things in 2023 having been added to The Journal’s Ones to Watch 2023 and RTE 2FM’s Rising list.
