Raglans Biography

Irish indie-folk four-piece Raglans have undergone a meteoric rise in popularity since the release of their debut album ‘RAGLANS’ with sell out shows across the continent and touring as support for Haim, The Strypes, The Fray European Tour and The Libertines reunion at Hyde Park. Multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Stephen Kelly jokes about the band's conception, pinching Rhos Horan (bass, backing vocals) from his old band at a music festival and setting off to the capital to meet Conn O'Ruanaidh (drums, backing vocals) to begin rehearsing, touring Ireland and putting the name out there. “We recorded a demo of our first song'Down,' and that was that, we were Raglans.&r...

Irish indie-folk four-piece Raglans have undergone a meteoric rise in popularity since the release of their debut album ‘RAGLANS’ with sell out shows across the continent and touring as support for Haim, The Strypes, The Fray European Tour and The Libertines reunion at Hyde Park.

Multi-instrumentalist and lead vocalist Stephen Kelly jokes about the band's conception, pinching Rhos Horan (bass, backing vocals) from his old band at a music festival and setting off to the capital to meet Conn O'Ruanaidh (drums, backing vocals) to begin rehearsing, touring Ireland and putting the name out there. “We recorded a demo of our first song'Down,' and that was that, we were Raglans.”

The name? “It came from a famous Patrick Kavanagh poem 'On Raglan Road'. Any school student from Ireland would be able to tell you about that poem, so I guess it stems from being Irish, remembering our roots and how we started out.

Raglans released their self titled album to critical acclaim and it debuted at no.5 in the Irish Album Charts and as an LP, encompasses the grouped vocals of The Lumineers, the multi-instrumentalist efforts of Of Monsters And Men, whilst highlighting the substantial post-punk camaraderie circa The Libertines.

2020 sees the return of Raglans with the release of their highly anticipated new single ‘One More Drop’
