Essentially Pop Meets: Wolves Of Youth At #IrishMusicParty Showcase

Lisa caught up with four piece indie band Wolves Of Youth ahead of their set at the Irish Music Party showcase, in Dublin’s Workmans Club. The band hail from Bundoran, Donegal (and Cavan), in Ireland.

Wolves Of Youth consist of Garry Doherty on vox and guitar, Stephen Shelly on lead guitar, Ciaran O’Reilly on bass and vox and Daniel McGettigan on drums.

The quartet have been together for 4 years, and are known for their lively and energetic shows. Their music is lyrically and rhythmically strong, and appeals to a broad spectrum, with influences including Kings Of Leon, Catfish And The Bottlemen, and Biffy Clyro, as well as their band members’ individual tastes.

Wolves Of Youth released their first single, ‘Say Something‘ in September 2016, and followed this up with ‘It’s Not for You‘ last year. Their new single, ‘Start Again‘, was released in late March this year and comes with a music video featuring footage of some of their live performances. ‘Start Again’ was recorded and produced by Philip Magee, known for his work with top Irish bands, Kodaline, The Academic, and The Blizzards, at Mill Studios. Magee also worked with Wolves Of Youth on their singles ‘Say Something’ and ‘It’s Not For You’.
