Introducing: The Cast Of Cheers

I haven’t written an introducing piece in a while, but now seems an appropriate time to introduce these guys. The Cast Of Cheers are a four piece from Dublin. Their music has been described as Indie/Math Rock, with obvious comparisons to Bloc Party and Foals being made. Their snappy guitar riffs and catchy hooks definitely have caused excitement in the Irish music scene.

Last night was a watershed moment for the band, with their new single ‘Family’ getting played on Zane Lowe’s Show on BBC Radio One in the ‘Next Hype’ segment. It was subsequently repeated after listeners responded overwhelmingly positively, which as Zane himself said was a first.

The future should be very interesting for the band. Many will now anticipate an album and a bright future. With the support of DJ’s like Lowe in the UK, there is definitely a sense that these guys will be around for the future. Listen to their previous single ‘Goose’ below via Bandcamp:
