Bicurious are Gavin Purcell and Taran Plouzané; a confused, loud, energetic, experimental two-piece from Dublin, Ireland and Brest, France.
The band are best known for riff sing-alongs, grooves that open up mosh pits and get heads banging, as well as the undeniable chemistry between the two remarkable musicians.
They’ve built a loyal fanbase through extensive touring and have won over crowds both at home and abroad, establishing themselves as a recognizable force on the European post rock/ math rock scene.
Formed in 2016, Bicurious released their debut singles Sugar Beats and T.O.I in 2017.
Their début EP “I’m So Confused” was crowd-funded by fans through an indiegogo campaign and a packed-out fundraiser gig in 2017, just a year and a half after the band’s formation. The EP was released in 2018, and the band celebrated the release with a sold out show in Whelan's, Dublin. The lead single from the EP, “Sleep”, has clocked up over 3 million streams on Spotify.
In March 2019 the band released the single “I Don't Do Drugs, I Just Sweat a Lot.” They toured the UK and Ireland in support of the release, followed by festival appearances at Knockanstockan, Vantastival, Electric Picnic and more in Summer 2019.
The band released their debut album ‘(re)constructed’ on the 30th of July 2021, to critical acclaim from the likes of Metal Hammer, Prog Magazine, Guitar World, and Audiotree. The album thematically follows a timeline of events highlighting the members’ dramatic life changes in the last 3 years.
In 2022 the band toured throughout the UK, France and Ireland including a sold out show in Bristol in support of '(re)constructed'. They also appeared at a number of festivals including ArcTangGent (UK) and Rock Herk (BE).
Bicurious kicked off 2023 with a sold out hometown show celebrating 5 years of their debut EP 'I'm So Confused.'
For the rest of 2023, the band will play a select few live dates including StrangeForms Festival, Portals Festival and ArcTanGent as they focus on finishing their second album. Drawing influences from the likes of Biffy Clyro, Reuben and Thrice, it’s a much more lyrical body of work, as the band explore new sonic ground.
