If Brit Awards were handed out to Best Kept Secrets or Lamentably Lost Legends, Pugwash wouldn’t be able to move under the weight of their gongs. In the 20 years since the Irish band was formed by Thomas Walsh – an ELO, XTC and Beach Boys nut from Drimnagh, south Dublin – their reputation has grown by stealth and they’ve caught the attention of almost all of Walsh’s musical heroes, but mainstream success has remained frustratingly, tantalisingly just out of reach.

Meet The Blue are a Irish/Canadian indie band based in Toronto, This powerhouse trio creates quirky pop music with a hint of 80’s charm. Front man Darragh O’ Sullivan has been honing his own sound with his off beat and unforgivingly catchy tunes. It is no wonder TODAY FM recently allocated their coveted ‘TRACK of The WEEK’ to their track ‘FIRE’.
EP ‘Clichés’, out now, with single ‘Our Own Way’.
