Hailing from Galway The Valmonts have performed extensively throughout Ireland before moving to Dublin. While their influences range from INXS to New Radicals and Prince, The Valmonts succeed in standing out from the crowd by approaching pop music from an angle that is completely unconventional. The unusually candid and honest songwriting makes for a refreshing contrast against their infectious pop riffs and pulsating rhythms. Bursting onto Dublin’s music scene, the boys made their debut performance at Whelan's Ones To Watch. It's already clear that 2023 will be a landmark year for the band jumping right back into live shows with a support slot to Ireland’s Eurovision representatives' WILD YOUTH. The band's sophomore single 'Me & Myself Again' and summer banger 'Love Overdose' garnered support throughout Irish & UK media outlets including CLASH Magazine, RTE Entertainment, HotPress, RTE 2XM, IRadio and Amazing Radio UK to name a few since its release on April 14th. The Valmonts celebrated by performing their first headline show at Whelans Upstairs in Dublin on May 17th selling out the venue. With summer festivals and a debut EP release on the horizon, this year is sure to put The Valmonts on the map.
"Reminiscent of noughties indie-rock, the Galway outfit don’t hold back on an anthemic number." - CLASH Magazine
"Filled with bright and shimmering textures, a soaring atmosphere, and killer hooks throughout, they look set to become one of the most talked about new names for the year ahead" - Chris Bound, Mystic Sons
“The Valmonts are taking upstairs by storm with their anthemic indie pop. The Galway lads delivered a set full of bangers to a packed house, complete with a blistering guitar solo on ‘Love Overdose’. They've proved up to the task of taking indie pop in an interesting direction.” - Tanis Smither, Hot Press
“The Valmonts go gunning for daytime radio with ‘Yesterday Kids’, a pop rock song that’s as sharp as the Galway four-piece’s haircuts.” - Stuart Clark, Hot Press
