Junior Brother :

“Irreverent is too small a word to describe Kerry singer Junior Brother. Armed with a battered acoustic guitar and a tambourine, his gaunt and guttural tunes sing with a gallows humour that will chime with anyone who’s been dragged up in Ireland between the triangulation/strangulation points of church, school and da drink.”
Alan Corr, RTÉ

“When I was listening to him – you know when you’re having that thing where you’re ‘I can’t decide if this guy is a genius or if I don’t like it’. And then I settled on ‘No, this guy’s a genius'”
Eoghan McDermott, 2fm

Swimmers Jackson :

Swimmers’ sunkissed indie-pop brought me straight back to the 1990s, with Laguna a particularly great track(…) – Aoife Barry – The Irish Times.

Swimmer’s show a similar passion for pop-driven alternative rock as Bouts but with a more biting and moody edge. dynamic undulating guitars and catchy vocals – GroundFloorGo
