The Gandhis

The Gandhis

 Dublin, Leinster, IRL

Imaginative, upbeat, fun and soulful pop . If Paul Mc Cartney and Brian Wilson had children together, this is the sound they would sound like, and possibly even look like - who knows!?


The band formed as a hobby in college and progressed to becoming the full-time tilt after travelling and working had been tried, tested and refuted. The Gandhis are a Dublin based band but have toured the country several times with the release of 4 singles after being signed by small Indie label 1969 records on the back of the 1st single.

Along with gigs around Ireland as well as a week of shows in the south of France, The Gandhis have made television appearances on RTE's "Saturday Night With Miriam" and "The Café" as well as securing support slots with such acts as Electric 6, Richmond Fontaine, Declan O'Rourke, Republic of Loose, Mundy, Villagers and Fight Like Apes.

Their debut album "You Are My Friend" was released to a sold out show in Dublin's famous Whelans as well as a Tower Records instore performance to glowing media reviews.

The following album After Autumn was release in March of 2012 to a glowing media reception suitably arriving shortly after their slot on the Crawdaddy stage of Electric Picnic and supports with Portland's Richmond Fonatine and Declan O'Rourke on their Irish tour leg. The band are currently promoting the album and after two single releases so far have been tipped in the press for album of the year.
