Faces of the Week: Galants

With the return of Slowdive to the live arena, the term shoegaze may well be one that you’ll hear bandied about more this year than in the past two decades. A good time then for Dublin trio Galants to make their debut. The influence of the likes of Ride and Dinosaur Jr looms large over their guitar heavy debut single ‘Howling / Silver’, produced by Ghost Estates’ Daniel Doherty and released in January. A blast from the past with a modern day bite.

Galants play the Workman’s Club Paddy’s Day Weekender on Sunday 16th.
