Formed in 2018, Tung in Cheek are a 4-man, Post-Indie Rock band with members split between the north and south side of Dublin. Members consist of Andy Burke on vocals and rhythm guitar, Eoin O'Shea on lead guitar, Gavin Dunne on bass, and Chris Brady on drums.
The band have invariably created a sustainable and unique presence - an upbeat post-pop bass colliding with psychedelic guitar effects. They have implemented their own influences to reinforce this sound and rely upon artists such as The Stone Roses, Mac Demarco, Dope Lemon, and Outkast to further their protruding indie aura.
In 2020 “Command Z” was released, having been produced by Dan Doherty of Darklands Recording Studio who worked with Fontaines DC for their early releases. Their latest singles “Ragbag Púca” (2022) and “Psychonaut” (2021) were produced at The Clinic Recording Studios by David Anthony Curley who has worked with other notable Irish artists including Sorcha Richardson, Gemma Dunleavy and Royal Yellow. Tung in Cheek’s music has gained significant traction on platforms such as Spotify and YouTube with notable recent reviews and features on several prominent Irish media platforms including Nialler9, Newstalk, Hot Press, and 98FM.
Tung in Cheek have had a successful run of post pandemic gigs including sold out headline shows at The Workman’s Cellar, The Grand Social and The Sound House. They have also featured in Ireland Music Week 2021, Lotus Sessions and have supported several other acts in venues across Dublin.
Off the back of a successful and eventful beginning to 2022, Tung in Cheek have further gigs planned, embarking on venues both inside and outside of the capital including upcoming shows in Galway, Cork and London in the summer months.
With a growing devoted fan base, this young outfit continues to work on refining their sound, assembling an array of indie tracks through consolidation of both new and old material. The band has steadily morphed and stylistically evolved into an adventurous promising indie rock ensemble with a psychedelic demeanour, paving its way as an artist to watch on the live Irish music scene.
