Mayo band DOPPLER record new song ‘Barracuda’ in a pollytunnel

Only a few weeks ago we had the wonderful Co Mayo band DOPPLER perform live for our online Zoom sessions and needless to say we we’re very excited to hear the news that band were spontaneously releasing a brand new track today (Wednesday October 7th).

The track is slightly a new direction for the band but we here at Finbar Hoban Presents reckon it’s awesome and we are looking forward to hearing it performed live.

So why did the band Record the new track fully live in my polytunnel! WHY? 
It was a tactic to highlight the DIY attitude we’ve had to take over the pandemic because financially we’ve all struggled in the live music industry. We’ve had to adapt and grow.

Mayo outfit DOPPLER recorded their brand new track in Barracuda in a Pollytunnel, well we guess that’s one way to record live music

This way we can bring live music back to the audience at a high level audibly and visually and we can do it for little or no money because we’re all really struggling financially and we wanted to release something new and do it live so people can experience fully live music but in a random or interesting location!

Check out the video for the new track below!

Smart as heck pop that will lodge in your head and refuse to leave”       Tony Clayton Lea – The Irish Times

” Most stuff doesn’t hold my attention for longer than 30 seconds but this one stuck” Horace Panter – The Specials’

“Great vocals and beautiful harmonies” – Christy Moore

“The likes of Simon and Garfunkel are the musical touchstones of the outfit; their harmonies are beautifully measured, making for a mesmerising listen” – Hot Press

Doppler’s debut single ” A Memory” has spent this summer on heavy rotation on Irish radio as it made the RTÉ Radio 1 Recommends List for a several  weeks.

After Hot Press premiered the video it sparked a “phenomenal reaction” according to HP’s A&R Dept main man Stuart Clark.

The Specials guitarist Horace Panter also struck an unlikely friendship with the Ballina based trio and is now a legit fan after stumbling across the track. ” A Memory” has now amassed over 90,000 plays on Spotify.
