StayStillPills are an East Cork based Irish American neo-psychedelic rock group. The band started in 2013 when Mick Hayes (Rulers of the Planet/The Shanks) and Clancy Potts teamed up with Darrin Mullins (Dissolutes/The Driven), Emmet Ryan (Kidminister) and Ian Walsh (Allegro).  StayStillPills are very influenced by all things 60’s as well as avant-garde Jazz and slight touches of Stoner Rock. In the summer of 2013, StayStillPills recorded a version of Del Shannon’s Move it on Over and this has subsequently been included on the Del Shannon Songwriters Tribute album that is currently on release in the US on Rockbeat records. Other luminaries included on this album are Frank Black (Pixies) Nash Kato (Urge Overkill) and Randy Bachmann (Bachmann Turner Overdrive).

Supporting Stay Still Pills in The Crane Lane Theatre Cork were Corks latest electronic duo Deadlights.  Check out Deadlights video below.

The Last Mixed Tape

the Stoles

Dublin indie-pop act the Stoles have released their infectiously jangling new single ‘Man In The Cave’.

A joyously full-on single ‘Man In The Cave’ bounces with a palpable indie swagger and showcases the Stoles ability to write hook-laden pop music within the alternative-rock edges of their music.

Centered around shuffling rhythms, melodic bass lines and interweaving guitars the band’s new single plays with the indie-pop sound and sensibilities to create an undeniably catchy three minutes of Irish indie at it’s finest.
