The IYMAs has helped the young people from our team in Galway grow our passion for music, as well as gaining skills and experience in areas that we may not experience in a traditional school setting.”

This indie rock band who are based in Dublin but who hail from other parts of  Europe including France, Germany, Poland and Portugal, form a perfect sonic collaboration. Their new single Man In A Cave is set to be released in Tower Records on January 15th where they will play a live in-store gig! Man In A Cave was recorded in Wasteland Studios Dublin whose client list include everyone from Bob Dylan to Miley Cyrus and Hozier.
