Incorporating Krautrock, post-punk, & psychedelia, Junk Drawer's intuitively loose & idiosyncratic indie rock mines anthems from their crate-digging tendencies. Featuring four fluid multi-instrumentalists & vocalists, driven by the inevitable harmony and discordance that comes from a sibling creative rivalry at the helm.

Winning 3 awards at the prestigious Northern Ireland Music Prize, for Best Live Act & Best Video (for 'Railroad King') in 2022, plus Best Single for 'Year of the Sofa' in 2019 (described as a 'slo-mo guitar pop jewel' by CLASH), making them the most awarded band in the history of the prize.

Debut LP 'Ready For The House’ was released in April 2020 through Art For Blind Records. Selling out its first run, it placed on The Quietus’ Best of 2020 albums list, & saw Junk Drawer named by leading US-based outlet PASTE Magazine as one of the Irish Acts to Watch in 2020. Their latest EP ‘The Dust Has Come To Stay’ came out in 2022 via Art For Blind. Singles were acclaimed by the likes of KEXP, Brooklyn Vegan, Bandcamp, Stereogum, Nialler9 & more. Junk Drawer received radio play from KEXP, BBC Radio 1 & BBC 6Music, & have shared stages with acts like Built To Spill, Suuns, Temples, Mclusky & Jeffrey Lewis, also enjoying UK & EU touring off the back of their recent EP.

Support on the night from Oh Boland.

Oh Boland’s debut LP Spilt Milk (released on Volar Records, San Diego, USA) was included in Pitchfork's Top 20 Garage Punk albums of 2016. Two US tours followed in 2016 and 2018 and a 2017 tour of the UK supporting Detroit post punks Protomartyr.

After relocating from Galway to Dublin in 2019 a new line-up saw Niall Murphy joined by Sarah Grimes (Grave Goods/September Girls) on drums and Ross Hamer (Postcard Versions/Music City) on bass. April 2022 saw the release of second record Cheap Things as a limited edition cassette to coincide with a run of shows with Protomartyr. Cheap Things will be followed up in 2023 by Western Leisure, the group's third LP.
