Galway City, County Galway
"Kicking back to Indie’s golden Nineties of whine, women and song set to chunky guitar and endearingly bitchy drawls, Blasterbra sold out their first gig for good reason. "
“Flying the flag for alternative rock 'n' roll since they came to attention in 2008”
2010 sees the eagerly awaited arrival of Galway band Blasterbra’s new sampler “Soon”. The CD was written, recorded, engineered and produced by the band in their cottage-come-studio Abhaile Studios with Artwork by singer Anna. This hard working band is hotly tipped for an exciting year.
Last year Blasterbra put together a 2 track demo which received regular airplay on Icon, Phantom fm; demo of the week, Green & Live, Green on Red fm and Galway Bay fm. Based on this demo Blasterbra were selected out of over 2,000 bands to take part in the ‘Road to V Festival’ Battle of the Bands in the Islington Academy, London. The selection panel consisted of A&R from Atlantic Records, Virgin and NME.
In recent months Blasterbra have been busy honing their live show. They have been establishing a quickly growing fan base with a string of shows across the country.
