Somebody's Child

Mar 14, 2023

11:00pm – 11:40pm CT


A groundbreaking voice in the Dublin music scene, Somebody's Child has fast become one of the hottest prospects in Ireland, with early singles receiving enthusiastic support from national radio (RTE Rising Artist 2020). An appearance on The Late Late Show followed, as well as an opening slots for Primal Scream and Kaiser Chiefs at Dublin’s 3Olympia Theatre and 3Arena respectively.

The band’s snappy and energetic live show had already been creating a word-of-mouth buzz by the time of Somebody’s Child’s debut headline tour at the back end of 2021, which culminated in sold out shows in London (Colours), Dublin (Button Factory) and more.

It wasn’t long before seminal NYC indie label Frenchkiss Records (The Drums, Passion Pit, Local Natives) came knocking, signing the band and putting them into the studio with Mikko Gordon (The Smile, ISLAND) in London - the anthemic new single “Broken Record” is the first fruit of their labour, with much more to come. Somebody's Child will perform an extensive tour of the UK, Ireland and Continental Europe in February and March 2023.
