Dylan Flynn and The Dead Poets make music for twenty-somethings living in a country that completely ignores them. In the last year the Indie up-and-comers have amassed over 40,000 streams on Spotify, secured support slots with NewDad and Milk., embarked on their first Irish tour and played a number of sold out headline shows.
“Running Away is a guitar driven, saxophone soaked anthem that incorporates elements of Indie Rock, Jangle Pop and Power Pop. The songs upbeat feel is contrasted by it’s lyrics, which I wrote last year while my grandfather was dying. The song covers themes of love and guilt, while trying to process losing someone who was so close to me. We wrote, recorded and produced the song from our small studio space in Limerick City, with help from Mike Gavin (Windings). Mike co-produced and mixed the track, while Richard Dowling mastered it.” – Dylan Flyn
The 5-piece, who blend elements of Jangle-Pop and Alt-Rock, take influence from artists such as The War on Drugs, Radiohead and The 1975. The band all met while at college in Limerick, Ireland, and use their music to delve into themes of loss, relationships and mental health.
The Indie-Rock outfit have been quickly gaining recognition in the Irish music scene for their energetic live shows, and self-produced releases, which have been featured in Hot Press, Golden Plec and Indie Buddie. Their music has also been heard across major Irish stations such as Today FM, RTE 2XM, and SPIN SW.
