Extravision are a new post punk band based in Dublin featuring members of Sissy, Surge and No Spill Blood. Firmly rooted in punk but wanting to explore new sounds and melodies Leigh, Aoife and Legs (from Canadian punk band Siren Songs) came together to create something brand new. Their music is like a high tension wire. Melodic bass riffs, airy sustained guitar, heart-wrenching harmonies and pounding floor tom.
In the last year, Extravision recorded their first demo with their drummer Legs, who they then lost to the Vancouver punk scene but added No Spill Blood’s Ror to the lineup. Their song “Don’t Wanna Be Here” was recently included on the historic ‘Karate Club LP’, celebrating the 10 year anniversary of the autonomous punk space in Dublin. They have also toured in the UK since starting to play together in 2017.
"Stick it on repeat" - The Thin Air
Their demo is released in August 2018 on Art For Blind Records.
With support from Aul Boy.
Aul Boy are an indie-rock type quartet that combines the sounds of New York, California and Donegal in a genre-jumping collage of clever lyrics, loose guitars and tight rhythms. Sometimes sharp and noisy, sometimes light and poppy, sometimes big and spacey, always groovy, Aul Boy began life as the solo project of guitarist and singer Fionn Robinson who got around to producing his own music after years of slinging guitar for bands. December 2016 saw the quiet release of his first offering - a 5-track, home recorded EP entitled Blue Ghosts. Since then Aul Boy has expanded to include Bjørn Patzwald (drums), Peadar Coll (bass), and Jeremy Howard (guitar/keys) and the group have been sharpening their live teeth with sets at Swell and Distorted Perspectives festival, and playing with Exmagician, The Altered Hours and BC Camplight. They have spent the past year writing and demoing new full-band tracks and released their first single as such in July 2018.
