Biography

Forming in late 2010, Castlecomer released their debut EP “Danny’s Den” on the 30th of March 2012 at one of Sydney’s premier live music venues, The Gaelic Theatre in Surry Hills. Laying their claim as the last live act ever to grace the stage at the venue, they released their “Danny’s Den” EP to a sell-out crowd of 600, and have continued to advance in leaps and bounds, thrilling audiences with their live performances in Sydney and down the east coast of Australia. Castlecomer boast a high-impact live show with their 5-part harmonies, and have shared the stage with such acts as Ball Park Music, Last Dinosaurs, The Griswolds, Faker, Winter People, Underlights and Mitzi among others, and have been involved in established events such as Secret Garden Festival, Communion, Major Raiser, Macquarie University Conception Day and UNSW Open Day. The “Danny’s Den” EP, recorded with Steve Manovski at Origami Studios, has enjoyed relative success since its release, selling over 1200 hard copies and 1000 digital sales to date. Castlecomer have recently finished recording their second EP with Simon Todkill at Studios 301 in Sydney, the new record due for release in early 2013. “One of the most exciting unsigned bands to come out of Australia in the past few years. The catchiness of their songs is second only to their musical ability. There’s no doubt that Castlecomer’s songs will be stuck in your head on repeat for days after.” – Cate Summers, Virgin Red Room, 2011 “Damn good and have a ridiculous amount of energy on stage. Infectious, upbeat and fun, like a jungle book of sounds.. So much voice and a whole lotta vibe.” – Small Werld, 2012
