Described by Hotpress Magazine as "Trip-Rock," LotusEater are a band whose sound is both distinct and genre-defying, mixing hip-hop/soul inspired grooves with adrenaline-fuelled bursts of alternative rock.


LotusEater have had an exciting birth to say the least. Formed in the later months of 2010 by vocalist, Siobhan Kavanagh and guitarist, Aiden Norris, material was written in a surge of creativity for the album demo tracks collectively known as "Guides." These songs, ranging in sound from the haunting melancholy of "Blue Lagoon" to the stomping groove rock of "Merlin," were quick to gain much praise and attention from various sources of Irish music media.
Swearimnotpaul.com told music fans "there’s so many standout tracks on here it’s difficult to pick a favourite. The styles are diverse, yet still sequenced perfectly..." Such was the maturity of the bands sound that the reviewer wrote excitedly "Perhaps these are stolen songs from some other, long-established act."
Celina Murphy of Hotpress Magazine joined the buzz in giving LotusEater a second seal of approval, writing "Trip-rock outfit LotusEater is newer than the iPad 2, so it’s mightily impressive that these Dubliners have managed to produce an album as fine as Guides in only a couple of months."
The band gathered further attention with a performance of their track "Night Phoenix" on RTE's culture show, The View, hosted by writer and broadcaster, John Kelly.
The band are currently gigging furiously and recording their debut album, also entitled "Guides" and due for release in the summer months.
