The group is set to release new music and are excited to return to the live scene.
In 2017, Brass Phantoms released their single Waiting Up. The track garnered widespread airplay across Irish Radio on the likes of RTE 2FM, 98FM, SPIN 1038, Today FM, and Radio Nova, as well as prestigious international features on the likes of BBC Radio 6 with Steve Lamacq and Spotify-curated playlists. Eager to keep this momentum in motion, the band’s following singles Indigo and Disciples acquired esteemed press coverage from the likes of Clash Magazine, The Irish Times, Hot Press and Joe.ie, as well as the group seeing themselves listed as ‘Artist of the Week’ on The Metro in the UK.
No strangers to performing live, Brass Phantoms have headlined shows in established venues such as Whelan’s and The Workman’s Club. They have major festival appearances under their belts from the likes of Other Voices, Indiependence Festival, and more. The group were the main support for Delorentos on their recently sold-out Irish tour. The group has embarked on a tour of the UK and they are just back from their second appearance at MONDO Festival in New York, having been listed as one of the festival’s top acts to see.
