Sun Mahshene are a post-shoegaze band from Ireland. Weaving together a perfect storm of fuzzed up guitars, memorable melodies, and insightful lyrics, this Dublin-based 6-piece are a must-see live experience. Since forming in 2018, the band have gained a cult following from high-profile support slots, as well as their own headline shows.
With members hailing from Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Poland, the line-up is eclectic and diverse, leading to music that is a bold mix of alternative rock, and ambient electronica. Balancing dreamy musical moments with a full-on sonic assault, the songs all have a decidedly anthemic tone.
Since releasing their first run of singles in 2018, the band have been officially playlisted by Spotify, and have received national and international airplay. 2020 saw the release of the "Contradictions & Tales of Fiction" EP, followed by the single "The Righteous One" in 2021. The single was supported by a mind-bending music video, directed by award winning visual artist Ste Murray.
In 2022 the band released a special LP "Space Echoes: The EPs" (FuzzedUp & Astromoon Records), compiling tracks from previously released EPs. The limited edition vinyl sold out in a single day. Following this, the band wowed the crowd at the 2022 Electric Picnic festival, Ireland's largest music event.
Sun Mahshene have since completed their debut album proper, which was mastered by Mark Gardener (Ride / OX4 Sound). The first single from the album was released in September 2023, and the band are planning to tour internationally across the latter half of the year in advance of the album release.
