These flamboyantly dressed purveyors of fast-moving indie pop appeared on the Dublin live scene not six months ago, but they’ve already done tremendously well for themselves, releasing their debut single in December and opening for hotly-tipped Londoners Palma Violets and former Hot Press Ones to Watch Leaders Of Men along the way. There’s little to be learned about the mysterious foursome online; clearly, this band prefers to let their riff-led alt. pop do the talking. “GANGS aim to revive the Gang ethic,” they scrawl on their Facebook bio, “the camaraderie and spirit which has been removed from the core of modern bands.” Does this mean no inter-band hissy fits? Oh well. Any act that unashamedly incorporates leopard print and paisley apparel into their touring wardrobe is alright by us.
