Sunburn are an Alternative Rock band based in Dublin, Ireland. The group bonded over a mutual appreciation of the many new Irish acts working their way up the ranks, touring local venues and gathering great followings through self-promotion.
Consisting of musicians Zak Coghlan, Conor McLoughlin, Charlie Webster and Colm Geraghty, they spent the pandemic relentlessly writing and crafting their sound in the studio.
Sunburn have built their popularity by touring in the Dublin, Cork and Galway live scenes. Most recently, they performed a sellout headline gig at The Workman’s Club in Dublin.
Sunburn released their debut single Jump the Gun independently and it has gathered over 250,000 streams on Spotify through self-promotion alone. Their second single, All I'm Missin' had a world exclusive release on BBC Music Introducing. A great start for a very exciting band.
Sunburn have recorded their next cycle of single releases with Colm Drennan. The new single Thunder brings an edgier, more pinpointed sound than Sunburn fans are used to, as the band continues to develop and find their perfect sonic performance. Thunder was featured on Spotify’s ‘New Music Friday UK’ and also opened the show on release night on BBC Across the Line with Gemma Bradley.
Sunburn are part of an astonishing cluster of indie bands that are bursting out of Dublin at the moment. Indeed, Sunburn have a melodic and passionate creativity that makes them as endearing and enduring as fellow Dublinites Fontaines D.C., The Murder Capital and Just Mustard with more of a pop flavour
