The key strength to likeKings lies in the 5 members' vocal talents & craftily put-together harmonies. Comparisons in the press have been made with Ocean Colour Scene, Creedance Clearwater Revival & The Libertines. Strong dynamics & melody have seen a strong fanbase singing the choruses right back


One night in the little known town of Wittenberge, North Germany in August 06, 3 of the 5 lads from Dublin and soon to be members of likeKings decided there was enough talent and unrelenting determination to make rhythms, melodies, lyrics and chords that would combine to create noises that paid homage to our eclectic influences such as late- Beatles, Radiohead, disco, jazz and blues. Rehearsals sparked 11 songs in a very short space of time and since a launch gig in January to nearly 200 people, there have been over a dozen gigs that have seen the band impress a well-known judging panel at the UCD Battle of the Bands, putting us in a final of 5 amongst 25 applicant bands, along with appearances on college radio and press, playing headline gigs in Crawdaddy and The Sugar Club and most recently supporting The Coronas in The Village, a very prominent band on the Irish music scene.


4 home-recordings thus far, with a studio lined up in September to record a 5 track EP for a release date in October. Recently played on Trinity FM, with an interview slot on FM104 lined up in the near future

Set List

A typical set list consists of 13 to 15 songs for our own gigs, combining 11 of our own songs with covers from our musical influences. We generally play for an hour with an ambition to impress with musical tightness, rock-solid melodies and technical ability.
