'Before we list why this song is excellent, find yourself a quiet place and hit play. Then just listen and come up with your own reasons why this 5.5-minute epic is one of the best songs you’ve heard this year.'

Utilizing elements of alternative rock, dream pop and folk as their canvas, INSIDEAWAVE create colourful music with modern twists. While having performed extensively on the Dublin music scene, critical response to their singles finds them broadening their audience internationally. In 2020, a memorable live show and an extensive catalog of unreleased material make them one of indie rock’s hidden gems.
Following their win of Nova Discovered 2018, a competition run by Radio Nova aimed at finding the best in Irish unsigned music, they have worked with producers such Cormac Butler & Gavin Glass coupled with festival appearances at Whelan's 'Ones to Watch' 2019/2020, Forbidden Fruit 2019 and an upcoming date at Vantastival 2020.
Having received BBC Radio Ulster, Radio Nova, & RTE 2XM airplay, INSIDEAWAVE return with their second single this year ‘Bright Windows in the Night’ in anticipation of their debut EP for release August coming on vinyl.
