DUBLIN, County Dublin
Fanlights are a young four piece band from Dublin with hints of ethereal wave, neo-psychedelia and dream pop rock. Formed in the summer of 2013 after meeting in music college BIMM, Fanlights have had an exciting year thats seen them play at some of Dublin's main music venues. They have also preformed at Indie Week Festival Limerick, You Bloom Festival Dublin , Monroes in Galway and a tour of London playing at the Iconic Dublin Castle, The Stags Head and the Clash Bar to name but a few. In just over a year, Fanlights have finished recording their debut EP with the single " Freeze Time" produced and mixed by Gavin Glass and Scott Halliday during July and set to release in September. The band have great feedback from fans and blogs also having been chosen for the cover of Scoop and featured in U&I magazine.
The full line up is Jacob Fry on Drums, Matt Keating on Bass, Karl McCrone on guitar and Unamae singer/songwriter. When you listen to their music you are opening that fanlight door into an other worldly house of music.

"Dublin-based newbies with a neat line in strong, well-constructed, radio-friendly alternative nuggets all brilliantly marshalled by Unamae Cahill’s confident belter of a voice" -
Deadly Music Blog-
" With three lads in the back and a frontwoman, the similarities to The Cranberries are not just in passing, With “a bit of an ethereal alternative neo-psychedelia dream pop vibe,” Fanlights are different to other new acts circling the Dublin live scene at the moment. Definitely one to watch."
Bob Crabtree Blogger -
