The Violet Roadkills are the Dublin based 4-piece of Gerry Horan, Graham Gilligan, Stevie Kavanagh and Mick Power, who produced one of the stand out performances at this year’s Castlepalooza.
Taking their cue from the likes of Death In Vegas and Holy Fuck they have a preference for a loud, intense and powerful mix of heavy riffs and driving synths, channeled into a haze of Electronica and Krautrock. Their influences from My Bloody Valentine, Royksopp, Steroelab to Godspeed You Black Emperor run riot throughout their music. These guys don’t mess about, they’re tight and do what they do very, very well. Check out the choice cuts below and you’ll get the picture.
You can download their debut release Tetramer for free over on Bandcamp
They were really impressive live too. Defo on my to see again list.
Barrygruff Presents ?
Perhaps. It would have to be in Dublin – not suited to Flanagan’s unfortunately.
Thanks a lot for this Barry!
No problem at all – great sounds.
