Slow Riot

Slow Riot

Limerick’s brooding post-punk quartet, Slow Riot infuse post-punk influences – Gang of Four, Television, Wire – with more contemporary bands such as Girl Band and Future of the Left.

Formed of Niall Clancy (bass, vocals), Aaron Duff (guitars), Liam O’Connor (guitars) and Paul Cosgrave (drums), early demos of ‘Demons’ and ‘Cooper’s Dream’ were immediately praised by fans and caught the attention of London label Straight Lines Are Fine, who in the summer of 2015 recorded their sell-out debut EP ‘Cathedral’ at the Manic Street Preachers’ FASTER studio in Cardiff with Kevin Vanbergen (The Pixies, The Maccabees, Dinosaur Pile-Up, The La’s and Biffy Clyro).

Since then the band has been hotly tipped by tastemakers both in Ireland and the UK, with Drowned In Sound, Q Magazine, The Line Of Best Fit, Hot Press and The Irish Times, amongst many others citing them for big things.
