“Unashamed upward pop act the Optimists are a fully-fledged exciting new prospect on the Dublin music scene, the group have been making moves to make their mark on 2017.”-The Last Mixtape
Despite being established for a little under two years, The Optimists have already made a huge impact on those who have heard their music,spending their summer in France signing CDs, photos and shoes. Their ElectricPicnicperformance, on the Oxjam Stage,wasdescribed by State.ie as;
“… Arip-roaring start, their alternative and energetic take on pop music placing them firmly in the tradition of Two Door Cinema Club, The Chalets and Wonder Villains.”
However, that was only the beginning. Since September of this year, The Optimists have kept themselves very busy performing on the Whelan’s main stage, The Workman’s Club and Whelan’s Ones to Watch,where their performance was received with excitement. Anyone, whether they can or cannot dance, can bopawayto The Optimists. A fact that became apparent that Friday nightwhenthe floor felt as if was about to give way to those jumping around in frontof the upstairs’stage.
The Optimists highly anticipated single “Not Her”has already been eagerly discussedon Soundfeed.com and Spin 1038’s Plan B. After months of waiting,fans of the band are getting more music from The Optimists but not in the same style as they imagined.
