Originally the solo project of multi-instrumentalist David Anthony McGeown, BODIES now plays as a four-piece live band with the addition of Nathan Maher (guitar), Danilo Ward (bass) and Scott Johnson (drums). The band has been busy all summer earning a name for themselves as a raucous live band with energetic performances at the likes of Castlepalooza, Electric Picnic and Groove Festival. BODIES were also one of the undisputed highlights of the Whelan’s Ones to Watch summer showcase festival in 2018. At this gig, having broken his wrist two days previously, David managed the first two songs with his hospital wrist brace, but was feeling restricted as the audience swelled. Never one to compromise, David ripped off the brace halfway through the gig so that he could play unrestrained – albeit with a broken wrist. This ‘all or nothing’ approach is typical of the Dubliner who has cultivated a signature sound that draws influence from the likes of Radiohead, Muse, Manchester Orchestra & Sigur Ros.
Having released an EP, ‘Soak’, in November 2017 to critical acclaim, BODIES upcoming debut album ‘Drench’ is one of the most anticipated studio albums from an Irish artist this year. It features collaborations with members of some of Ireland’s most prominent bands such as Squarehead, Kid Karate, Blooms, Kodaline and Overhead the Albatross.
