Monsters of Loch presents:
Peer Pleasure are a village-wide renowned musical quintet and comprised of members from all across the great south-eastern plains of Co. Wexford.
The group came together in the year of our lord 2021 in an attempt to achieve global pop domination, despite playing a mix of ‘musical’ styles informed by the sounds of garage rock, Nashville country and lost episodes of Wife Swap USA.
The band has had great success gigging and organising DIY shows around County Wexford and Dublin; Including but not limited to Ionaid Sean Hueston in support of the RHL with Meryl Streek, an all day punk festival with Tunnel Rats in Bohs Bar, in conventional venues such as Anseo with the Onion boys, a triumphant homecoming show in the Enniscorthy Presentation Arts Centre a headline show in the Workman’s Cellar and a sold out show in the downstairs of Fibber Magees as well as an upcoming support slot with Meryl Streek in Whelans. They have been gigging relentlessly since May 2022 to build a following and recently embarked on a tour of the Mainland Continent. Performing in Leuven, Amsterdam, Groningen, Cologne and Tournai. Peer Pleasure have conquered Northern Europe and now set their sights towards home to take over the rest of Ireland.
Foot Squeaker are a 3-piece alt-rock band from Gorey, Ireland. Foot Squeaker love to explore, grow and feed off their musical explorations, to do it for themselves.
Assembled in 2018, Diarmuid and Mike spent that full year sculpting songs and all the while Mike would quality control incoming riffage.
Diarmuid Comerford, Foot Squeaker’s lead singer and guitarist explains: ‘This time I was all in. I always felt in other bands there would be too many lulls in the live sets. We were going to keep the energy up. Mike would flag me straight away if I wasn’t adhering to the rule of bangers we had put in place from day one.’
In January 2020 the band headed to Hellfire Studios, Dublin, to record four tracks with Ivan Jackman (Chad Channing, Sinéad O’ Connor, Gillaband). The band released three singles ‘No Connection’, ‘Wayside’ and ‘Specimen’ over 2020 garnering radio play across Ireland and countries across the world including Scotland, Canada and New Zealand.
Alfred joined on bass in early 2022 bringing a wealth of experience and completing the jigsaw. The band played a triumphant live home show in Gorey April ’22, finally getting the chance to air their singles live and bounce heads with the new material. Fibbers in Dublin had it’s walls rattled and audience super satisfied during their recent live set. The band will be releasing new music in 2023.
Formed in late 2019, Drying Weather is a four-piece band from Dublin.
Over the course of the last few years they have been working with producer Eoin Whitfield (EHCO, Enemies) and released a series of singles, drawing praise from the likes of Kellii Scott (Failure) and Jordon Zadorozny (Blinker the Star).
Their original, fuzzy acoustic brand of alternative rock layered with vocal harmony and twinkling reverb adds up to a curiously addictive sound. Towards the end of 2022, the band was nominated for two COBRA Awards for Best Single (Is This The Place?) and Best Music Video (Boots).
With post-pandemic shows in Berlin and London, plus a recent spot at Whelan’s Ones to Watch Festival 2023, the band continues to hone their craft on the live circuit at home and abroad. The recording of debut album A Family Meal is well underway with the LP expected to arrive in 2023. East Coast FMs Irish Music Months Finalists.
Three bands who guarantee aural satisfaction on one night.
