This is Galway is all about celebrating local. So we want to highlight some of the brightest up-and-coming bands and musicians that help maintain our lovely city’s reputation as a hub for the arts. In this edition of The Low-Down we talk to one of Galway’s loudest new bands – Turnstiles..
Pillow Queens are the kind of band that will take over your playlist from the first second you hear them. They are often labelled as punk due to their DIY approach and focus on socio-political issues, but they infuse enough surf and indie-rock to the music to attract a wider audience to their underground sound. Their fan-base is growing steadily after a busy few years. We chat to the band as they prepare for a GIAF headline show and a busy summer…
The Clockworks are turning into one of Galway’s biggest success stories. They have seen a meteoric rise in the last year after moving to London and being immediately signed to Alan McGee’s record label, Creation23. Yes, that’s Alan McGee that used to manage Oasis!
