Offaly outfit The Collision. top the Sound House Dublin bill alongside Cork’s finest: Little Known & Mossy.
In a cross country clash of some of Ireland's most exciting up and coming acts, The Collision., Little Known and Mossy come together for a triple header at The Sound House on February 19th.
Represented by Fluttertone, Offaly four-piece The Collision. will team up with the cream of Cork’s crop in indie alt-rockers Mossy and their rebel comrades Little Known for the highly anticipated event.
This will mark The Collision.'s first Dublin show. The young group formed during lockdown and began playing gigs locally whilst gaining radio play including Tipp FM’s Premier Irish.
Co-lead singers Ciaran Brennan and Diarmuid Brady along with drummer Seán Brady and bassist Callum Bergin have been busy perfecting their sound during the slew of lockdowns.
They dropped their debut single ‘Little 22’ in August 2020 to acclaim and followed it up with ‘Swing’ in October. The Collision. shared their latest single ‘Lemon Bake It’ in February 2021 and are currently gearing up for the release of their debut EP.
The quartet combine irresistible riffs, unforgettable hooks and raw talent in their releases.
Cork four-piece Little Known emerged in their new form earlier this year. The group formed as Private Idaho in 2019 before spending 2020–2021 crafting Little Known’s sound.
Little Known pride themselves on “making the best music they possibly can” for their fans to enjoy. Comprising Liam Daly on guitar and vocals, bassist Finn Walsh, drummer Niall Carroll and guitarist Matthe Lucas, the group have been causing a stir with their eclectic sound.
They released ‘Pretty Song’ as Private Idaho in 2020, which gained the group significant airplay. Their successful debut was followed by ‘I Like It’ and ‘Shed’ in 2021.
Now reformed and rebranded, fans are excited for what’s to come from the rising act. Head-banging beats, emotional vocals and slick instrumentation are a precursor for Little Known.
Completing the triple-header for this month’s gig, Mossy are coming out of Cork with one single to their name and plenty of hype. The four-piece formed in 2019 and began playing support slots for local legends like Red Sun Alert, Ora Fantoma and The Flavours.
Lead singer Emma Maguire and lead guitarist Brian McDonnell came together as a songwriting duo before Mossy came together. Two became four when bassist Joe O’Reilly and drummer Kate Dunlea joined the group in 2019.
The group’s lone single ‘Accord’ arrived in September full of lush instrumentation, Maguire’s entrancing vocals and an ethereal riff.
Mossy are hard at work crafting their next single ‘Kira’, due to land soon. Part of the exciting emerging Indie scene currently taking Ireland by storm, the band have stamped their print on the genre and are set to continue their rise throughout 2022.
Doors for this must-see triple headliner event at the Sound House are at 7:30pm.
