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.
