Biography

A Northern Light are an alternative-rock band based in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

The three-piece, Darren, Omar and Colm, hit the Belfast music scene in 2010 to much acclaim, boasting a variety of musical styles in the vein of Angels & Airwaves, Blink-182 and Pendulum.

One of the main objectives behind the band’s music is to inspire solidarity and optimism among listeners - themes which run through the first two EPs, ‘Chase the Ghosts Away’ (2010) and ‘The Right Thing To Do’ (2011).

Among the band’s highest-profile performances, so far, are three Radar headline slots at the Speakeasy bar, a support slot with rising stars, Mona, and a live session for BBC Introducing on Radio 1.

A Northern Light are on the verge of releasing their debut, double-A side single - ‘Pilgrim’/’March Into The Light’ – which sees the band further-crafting their own eclectic mix of traditional band and electronic music. Accompanying the songs are two high-concept music videos – among the most ambitious work from an unsigned artist ever to come from Northern Ireland.

Just as the title of their single suggests, A Northern Light are marching toward a bright future; with plans for a full-length debut album already in the works, and a strong DIY ethos, the band are set to achieve great things in the coming months.
