The Coonics, whose music has been described as “devotional, inspirational and a small biteen naughty”, are a four-piece Indie band from Tuam. Since their first gigs in August 2008 the band have established themselves as one of the brightest up and coming bands in the country.

Their song Skinny Jeans, has received extensive national airplay and Ian Dempsey labelled them his "favourite up and coming band".
This year alone saw them play support to The Sawdoctors on two UK Tours and share the stage with The Republic of Loose, Mundy, The Flaws, Hayseed Dixie and The Chakras.

The Coonics have just made their debut release a 5-track E.P. which has been met with glowing reviews and was chosen by Jackie Hayden as his Pick of The Fortnight in Hotpress.
