SWEETS is an alternative rock band from Limerick, Ireland. The band’s roots are firmly entrenched in Limerick’s prolific music scene and features members of much-loved, critically acclaimed acts Tooth, Giveamanakick, Windings & Japanese Jesus. Expect powerful, guitar-driven, hook-filled songs, laden with unexpected riffs, pounding rhythms and textured vocals that flips the riffy/post-hardcore/grunge sound on it’s head.
Long-time collaborators Liam Marley (Guitar/Vox) and Lorcan Bourke (Drums) had been writ- ing songs together for over ten years before joining forces with close friends Keith Lawler (Guitar) and Bertie Kelly (Bass) to form SWEETS in 2021. “It took a pandemic to finally get us together, it’s just felt like the right time.”
When asked to describe their sound, the members said that: “We grew up together as friends, as part of an incredible music scene and because of that formed our musical tastes together. We take influences from what resonates with us individually and it just comes out very naturally as a band then. We have a lot in common but it’s our individual tastes, experi- ences and influences that make the unique SWEETS sound.”
The band plans to release a series of singles over the coming months with accompanying videos, culminating in a full length LP in 2023.
