Dundrum, County Dublin
"Marrying the sweeter elements of Interpol and The National, Singer Michael Broderick calls out in a soulful purr over militant drums and agitated guitars. Throw in a handful of truly gorgeous melodies and you've got a world class performance on your hands" - Celina Murphy, Hot Press.
Having their sound described by Jim Carroll of The Irish Times as a "fine take on the far side of indie-pop" Spies have achieved quite a lot since their formation. With their debut EP, Liars Call Me King, receiving regular air play from Phantom Fm, 2FM, 98FM and Today FM DJ's including live sessions for Dan Hegarty and Paul Mcloone and John Barker.
April saw the release of Spies latest single 'Barricade' at Whelans which received the Hot Press single of the fortnight along with the thumbs up from the Irish press and a Tower Records in store.
June saw Spies performing at the Forbidden Fruit Festival. The gents are very excited for 2012 which they hope will bring them good fortune predicted by the cards and wished for by their mothers.
