Hailing from the Viking City of Ireland, Under Starling are breathing fresh air into the Irish music scene with their unique brand of alternative rock.
Beautiful with a bite - Under Starling invoke a feeling of euphoria with their reverb-soaked melodies and dark distorted riffs. A powerful rhythm section drives a rocky undertone to their pop-styled music. The band draw influence from the likes of Biffy Clyro, The 1975, and U2 but their own sound is difficult to pigeonhole.
This gritty four-piece are rapidly building their flock of followers through their energetic live shows and popular releases. Latest single Trick of the Light has gathered many streams on all platforms as well as being playlisted on BBC Radio Ulster. Their most recent body of work, Mongrel EP, was praised by the likes of Hot Press, RTE 2XM to name a few. Between crowd-surfing, mosh pits, and the interaction Danny has with the audience, the band is deeply connected with their fans. Recently Under Starling has bridged the gap with their international audience by playing their first sold-out show in London. The escapism offered by their music and live shows brings people together like a flock of starlings. “We are like murmurations”.
