Dublin, County Dublin
Meltybrains? was born with the recording of a number of electronic vocal-based songs, taking ‘lyrics’ from household objects such as bills, cigarette packets and deodorant cans. From the word go this was a band who did things differently.
Since their first appearances back in Dublin 2012, Meltybrains? have garnered a strong reputation for their unabashed creativity, picking up a loyal following that has helped them sell out shows across Ireland, the UK and the US. The band has also enjoyed great success playing at major music festivals including SXSW and Electric Picnic.
Meltybrains? live shows have always been a major part of the band’s appeal, and have gained rave reviews.

"The members of Meltybrains? might be classically trained musicians, but their music is indefinable, their fans look like cult members and their live shows are bewildering" - The Irish Times
