Oh Boland, Heart Beach
14 Feb 2018 (20:30)
Oh Boland are a three piece noisy guitar pop band from Tuam, Co. Galway.
A band equally in love with the Can-nier moments of Thee Oh Sees and Yo La Tengo and the summer pop jangle of The Clean. Catching them live is wholly recommended, the musical joins visible in the best early-Pavement way.
In 2013 they self-released two free EPs aptly titled 'OH!' and 'HO!' produced by Brian Kelly of So Cow fame and in 2014 they released a 10 track split cassette; 'DELPHI' with Westport's Me and My Dog through Dublin's best pop collective Popical Island.
Oh Boland have played with the likes of The Sonics, Paul Collins (The Beat/The Nerves), The Growlers, Parquet Courts, Speedy Ortiz, Metz, Sheer Mag and Protomartyr.

"One of the most electric live performances this writer has seen to date... untamable raw energy reminiscent of the early days of punk"- Hotpress.
"No nonsense, no faffing about, just top notch tunes done with style and swagger... utterly fuckin' brilliant!" - BarryGruff
"Energy is key to what makes them fun to be around- a ragged, passionate and spirited approach to thrashing the crap out of guitar, bass and drums' - Phi Udell Editor for State.ie
