Other Voices: Ones To Watch – Mongoose

Other Voices is right around the corner and we have decided to put together a list of our ones to watch at Other Voices 2015. Second on our list is Mongoose.

Mongoose are probably one of the most well liked bands on the Irish music scene at the moment and it is obvious why that is! They are full of energy and life and possess great musical talents.

Their music is very varied and can range from heart tugging lyrics to playful jazzy numbers. The band classify their own sound as an inventive Jolk (Jazz-Folk). The band released their debut self titled album earlier in the year and if you haven't already got it it is well worth a purchase as it is packed to the brim with lovely harmonies and great songs. ('Can I See You Tonight' is a personal favourite - So make sure to treat your ears to that one!)

Check out their latest music video for 'Slow Burning Feeling' filmed by our very own Ciaran O'Brien and Shannon Purcell, and staring Stephen Murray.

Mongoose are set to play the Other Voices Trail this year in Dingle and are sure to win over the crowd as they do wherever they play.

We have filmed session videos with a number of the acts announced for Other Voices 2015 so far, with Mongoose being one of those acts. Back in January we met up with the ladies in Bushy Park, Dublin where they performed their song 'Breath' and a cover of Fleetwood Mac's 'Landslide for The OB Sessions.
