Dublin, County Dublin
CRISPR Kid are a Dublin based 4-piece guitar band who released their debut E.P. 'Fresno Rescue Mission' in December 2019 and performed blistering gigs at The Sound House, Whelan’s ‘Ones To Watch 2020’ and a headline show at Lost Lane, Dublin in late January 2020.
CRISPR Kid are currently working on their second E.P. before returning to the live circuit in spring 2020.
Singer Pauric Sweeney and guitarist Phil Dobie first met at an after party on the island of Ibiza, and after initially entering into drunken dialogue over a mutual infatuation with the lush textural sounds Verve, early REM and Sigur-Ros, decided they simply had no option but to begin collaborating after a random, one-in-a-million chance encounter in Dublin.
The universe had spoken...and CRISPR Kid were born.
Multi-instrumentalist Stephen Browne allied with the pair in 2018 taking up duties on bass-guitar and occasional piano and the line-up was completed with Brazilian drummer Rom Passos adding hypnotic grooves in July of 2019.
