Adore w/ Support at Anseo

If your ear is anywhere near close to the ground – or you’ve found yourself in venues such as Róisín Dubh, Cyprus Avenue and Workman’s Cellar over the last while – you’ll likely know why Adore have swiftly emerged as one of the country’s fiercest garage-punk propositions.

Made up of Lara Minchin on guitar and vocals, bassist/vocalist Lachlann Ó Fionnáin, and drummer Naoise Jordan Cavanagh, the trio wield a singular sound that shows just cause for their (oft-pedalled but not always called-for) “fast-rising” status.

Uniting from opposite corners of the island – Galway, Donegal and Dublin – the band are increasingly standing apart with a garage sound that sears and earworms in equal measure. Sealing the deal is how – not least live – it filters a full prism of influence, from surf and disco, to pop and more than a hint of glam.

Which is to say, the odds of Adore going stratospheric over the next year or two are very much in their favour. Get yourself down to Anseo in Dublin this Friday, 12th July, when the band headline a free show, featuring special guests DJ Oompah (Banríon) and DJ Loompah (Search Results).
