SLEEPOVER CLUB PRESENTS… Banríon, Beauty Pageant, Robbie Stickland
Banríon is an indie-rock band, fresh on Dublin’s indie/alt-rock/post-punk DIY scene. Headed by Róisín Ní Haicéid, the songs are raw, revolving around the complex and unique theme of disability, alongside relatable young experiences such as emigration, heartbreak and loving your pals.
Beauty Pageant‘s songs take influence from 90s indie-rock, from the power-pop of Ash to the slacker sensibilities of Pavement, while incorporating the synth hooks of late-2000s NME fodder and the cathartic energy of 2010s punk bands such as Joyce Manor. With his understated humour and DIY ethos,
Robbie Stickland has earned comparisons to the likes of Mac DeMarco, Jonathan Richman and Kevin Morby – check out his LP Warm Jeans In The Morning to get a taste of what he’s offering.
