Limerick based M O S C O W M E T R O released their debut EP ‘Spirit of A City’ on 11th April 2014 which was co-produced by the band, Owen Geaney and Rob Kirwin (Glasvegas, The Horrors). This was followed up by the release of the singles ‘Late Night Radio’ and ‘Berlin Prayer’ in Jan 2015. This year will see the band release another EP ‘Neo American Afterlife’ and possibly an album by the end of the 2015.
Described as post punk revival/ shoegaze, they take inspiration from every aspect of life including films, writers, art; the band’s influences are diverse, from The National to GBV, Walt Whitman to MBV.
Having played festivals including Electric Picnic, Body and Soul and Liss Ard in Cork to name a few, M O S C O W M E T R O have also earned their stripes on the live performance scene supporting some of the best Irish and international acts such as The Futureheads, The Minutes, The Funeral Suits, Dry the River and Jape.
Moscow Metro had a successful summer touring in Germany where the band performed at Karrera Klub, Berlin, a sold out show in Stuttgart and joined The National and ST. Vincent at The Maifeld Derby Festival in Mannheim among others. 2015 will see M O S C O W M E T R O touring Ireland and Germany, with the possibility of further European dates and the promise of more releases.
