‘Brightest sound coming out of Ireland in a long, long time. It’s pleasant, it’s powerful and it’s genuine. Absolutely brilliant stuff’ – Shea Byrne, RTÉ Radio 1 • TOUCAN are the explosive ten-piece funk-pop ensemble blasting out a blend of feel-good, heavy-on-the-brass, contagiously funky soul and pop music. With irresistible guitar licks, dazzling brass hooks, a tightly knit rhythm section and a silky-smooth vocal blend, the band serve up quite a sound. After releasing their debut single, We Fell for Miles and their debut EP, they’ve racked up over half a million Spotify streams, with huge listenership in the UK, the US and Australia. They’ve seen coverage from The Irish Times, Hot Press Magazine, JOE.ie and RTÉ 2fm. They were featured at Other Voices 2018, and now they’ll be playing only a select handful of performances such as their headline show in the Theatre Royal Waterford and an intimate performance in London before a full tour in the Spring.

‘A hugely promising debut’ – JOE.ie •

‘Expect to see them everywhere’ – REMY •
