Comprised of vocalist Katie Ball, guitarists David Noonan (also backing vox) and Mete Kalyon, bassist Rob Clarke and drummer Shane Maguire, Just Mustard have been steadily building a reputation as one of Ireland’s most thrilling new bands -live and on record -since forming in 2016. Newly signed to Partisan Records, the home of Idles, Fontaines DC and Cigarettes After Sex, Just Mustard have been working on their second record, their first for the label and are set to share more information on the release in the coming months. The Dundalk band’s heady blend of noise, trip hop and electronic influenced music earned their debut album Wednesday huge acclaim in their native Ireland in 2018 -including a Choice Music Prize nomination for Irish Album of the Year. NME dubbed their debut “a two-toned masterpiece” and the Irish Independent described it as“a swirling atmosphere-heavy thrill-ride”. Since signing with Partisan Records, Just Mustard have released their first concert film "Live in Dreams" and recently released their latest single "I am You" to widespread critical acclaim and excitement for their first single since 2019.
