“We’ve beaten Adele like, so we’re obviously more popular than her!”  said a pretty chuffed, Gary Keane. “It’s class, we just put it up ourselves and recorded it ourselves” he added.

“We never knew it was going to pay off. Yesterday I was totally at peace with the fact that it would probably go nowhere, genuinely! I was like, ‘I’m just in it for the slog and to keep it going’. You make music you love and hope people will enjoy and when it does come true and people have been buying it in the background, you’re like ‘this is class!'” said Gary.

‘Stylin’ is a four track EP that features the title track and the band’s cover of Hozier ‘Take me to Church’ which has received a lot of radio play.

The track has been getting a lot of airplay on regional radio stations along the east coast as well as closer to home on Radio Kerry, Spin South West and Cork stations.
