Video Premiere: Tuath – Who Do You Want Me To Be


Something that they have good reason to pride themselves on, very few Irish acts tread a path as singular as Donegal-based experimental noise band Tuath. A highlight taken from their Existence Is Futile EP (which we reviewed here), their new single ‘Who Do You Want Me To Be’ is a shoegaze-soaked garage psych gem that – combined with Nartystation’s wonderful, albeit slightly NSFW accompanying video – sifts through the murky depths of identity in a swirl of fuzz, groove and howling sax. Truth be told: this is right up there with our favourite Irish tracks of 2016. Have an exclusive first look at that video right below.

Tuath playing alongside The Altered Hours at Dublin’s The Grand Social on December 15. Tickets available here.
