about

Oh Boland play scum pop straight out of Tuam, Co. Galway.

Formed in 2012, the trio of songwriter Niall Murphy (Guitars, Vocals) Eanna MacDonnchadha (bass) and Simon McDonagh (drums/vocals) came together to form Oh Boland over the course of numerous drunken pub crawls in their hometown. The band eventually recorded a couple of EPs with Brian Kelly of So Cow, and began venturing out into Galway city, leading to involvement with Dublin-based collective Popical Island and the release of the Delphi split LP with fellow indie-poppers Me and My Dog.

The Delphi recordings brought them together with producer Mark Chester(Ginnels/No Monster Club), a relationship which continued into the recording of this first full-length, Spilt Milk. The record was made over the course of two days over Halloween weekend 2014 in a cottage in Carraroe. Most of the tracks were written in the town of Tuam while Murphy worked slow day shifts in a bar populated by agrarian tragedies, gambling addicts and mislaid bachelors. Boredom-fuelled pop melodies driven by a love of girl group; country music and 70s power pop, enshrouded in the drunken slop of the Irish barroom rock n roll band and the unbridled motion of punk.

The band recently returned from a 4 week tour of the US concluding with a set at Gonerfest 13 in Memphis. Over the last few years, the band has had the honour of touring Ireland with Parquet Courts and playing with the likes of Sheer Mag, Protomartyr, Metz, Speedy Ortiz, the Growlers, the Sonics, and Paul Collins (the Nerves).

Spilt Milk is officially due out on 09/30 online and in the US via. Volar Records (San Diego)

Oh Boland will be touring Ireland in November with copies of the record available at the shows- dates TBA
