The band, Locklin, is the brain child of Barry McLoughlin and hail from Thurles, Co.Tipperary.
Under the pseudonym of Locklin, they released their debut EP in late 2018, entitled ‘Never Forget’.
From that, a series of live gigs and a healthy amount radio play from the single ‘Two Shining Lights’ amounted. Sets in The Crane Lane in Cork occurred, as well as support slots with the likes of Seskin Lane in Whelans, Dublin and Hermitage Green on their tour in January 2019.
Locklin has released a number of singles following that and in July of 2021, during the initial lockdown, they decided to release the single ‘Setting Sun’, which fared well on radio and in print.
This upcoming single release, entitled ‘Shoot The Breeze’ is due out on March 26th and was recorded prior to the initial lockdown of March 2020.
The track features songwriter Barry McLoughlin on guitar and vocals, Eoin Ryan on guitar and vocals and Cian Cronin on drums. ‘Shoot The Breeze’ is an upbeat indie rock song, that might want you to dust off your air guitar and give it a go!
