October Fires are a four-piece group consisting of Carol Somers on piano, vocals and percussion, Lisa Baker on piano, vocals and percussion, Eoghan O'Neill on bass and Eric Somers on guitar. The band have a special bond, consisting of best friends, family and newlyweds. 

The band's name was inspired by the smoky scent in the air walking home from practice one autumn night. October has a unique vibe, with its perfect blend of beauty and eerieness, a trademark of the band's sound.

Their music is continually inspired by this balance, and the time of year is such a favourite that band members Carol and Eoghan even held their wedding on October 28th 2017, cementing the future of the band!

Carol and Lisa met in 2002 studying music in Maynooth University. They've been inseparable ever since after finding an innate ability to harmonise together, even being able to predict what the other is about to do! This bond has become the central feature of the band. 

Eric, Carol's brother, was the final piece of the puzzle, much to the delight of the other members, joining what has now become a tight musical outfit. Their style is difficult to pin down but fans have likened their sound to 'Radiohead meets Tori Amos'

The band describe their music as haunting, harmonic, dark pop with a fusion of musical influences from choral music : classical : pop : soul : funk : rock. 

Their lyrics and vocals range from dark to airy, whimsical to witchy, embedded with gritty and driving sounds, October Fires are looking to set every venue alight!
