After releasing their latest EP Psychic Dance Routine, Californian rock band Scowl is coming to Ireland for a three-show headline tour this August
Last September, the rock act Scowl crossed the States to work on their latest project, Psychic Dance Routine with the Grammy-nominated producer Will Yip. Now, after releasing the five-track EP in April, they're coming to Ireland for a three-show headline tour.
First making landfall at the Ulster Sports Club in Belfast on August 22nd, they'll follow it up with a show at Dolan's in Limerick the next day. With a final show at the Workman's Club in Dublin on the 24th, Scowl, presented by Singular Artists, will show Ireland just how they're climbing the ranks of the rock music scene.
Kat Moss, the band's singer, highlights how important the performance aspect of being a band and touring is to Scowl - it doesn't just emphasise their sound, it helps define them as a band.
“I chose to revolve the main theme around performance. This is both literal and figurative, as the band has been on tour practically all of 2022. My perspective of being consumed as the version of myself that is ‘performing’ has shifted dramatically, while simultaneously grappling with the experience of being a feminine artist in a world that doesn’t always take you seriously.”
That's not even touching on the untamed EP Psychic Dance Routine. Their declaration "WE CAME TO DANCE" has been the perfect declaration in light of the alternative and hard-core punk sound found in their EP. Overall, it's a fantastic addition to Scowl's larger work.

Between 'Opening Night,' 'Shot Down,' the title track 'Psychic Dance Routine' and more, the EP is filled with iconic sonic rock symphonies emboldened by the powerful and uncompromising vocals of Moss.
“The best way I can define Psychic Dance Routine is that it represents the mental gymnastics or ‘dance routine’ one might have to participate in order to telepathically project their feelings or emotions to another person because they no longer have the ability to express themselves with words," Moss explains.
“The overarching theme of this EP lies heavily in the definition of the name - I wanted to lyrically express feelings of alienation and loneliness as well as questioning my own reality. I made an effort to speak more with metaphors as I wanted these topics to be relevant to other people.”
