Bullet Girl are a four piece punk band from North Dublin. Bullet Girl have been cutting their teeth on the Dublin music scene for the last few years with their incendiary unpredictable live shows and confrontational social commentary.
The band sold out a Thomas House show for March 2020 and secured an Aiken Eastbound gig before the pandemic struck and both gigs were cancelled, along with a planned Irish Tour. The band were also due to make their Electric Picnic debut in September of that year on a brand new stage. They capped off 2020 however with an exclusive livestream in the renowned Mike The Pies, which was viewed by over 2500 people on the night and a Radio Nova sponsored Oblivion Live Session which raked up over 50,000 views online.
At the tail end of 2020 they were named 'Ones to Watch 2021' by The Daily Mail and The Last Mixed Tape named their single 'Panic 2020' one of the best singles of the year.
In 2021 they will release their debut EP 'Talking Pony' produced by Daniel Fox of Girl Band.
'Talking Pony' was written during lockdown as the band reflected on their working class upbringing and dealt with issues such as toxic masculinity in working class Dublin, the emigration of close friends, a culture of violence within young men, depression and the changing landscape of their hometown.
Bullet Girl headline a sold out show in Mike the Pies on August 6th, another sold out show in Button Factory on September 20th, tour the UK in November 2021, and go on a homecoming tour in January 2022.
"The post-punk four-piece have built up a massive reputation in Ireland for their powerful live performances and gritty take on modern life in Dublin City.
Raucous single Concrete Bed, produced by Daniel Fox from Girl Band, tackles drug culture, homelessness and modern despair in their home town." - Rory McKeown (Daily Star, Ones to Watch 2021)
“Guitarist - Dylan Keenan, singer - Aaron Doyle, bassist - Tony Keyes and drummer Noel Dempsey have been reporting back from the frontlines, informed by drugs, dodgy nights-out, fights and turbulent relationships that your twenties bring all anchored by the backdrop of Dublin for several years now.”
- Stephen Byrne (Golden Plec)
“With a slew of new releases over the past few months, Dublin’s very own post-punk rockers Bullet Girl are marked as one of the chief outfits of the local scene who refuse to conform to the detriments of the current social climate." - Joe Coughlan (University Times)
