Bicurious are Gavin Purcell and Taran Plouzané; a confused, loud, instrumental and experimental two-piece from Dublin, Ireland and Brest, France.
Formed in September 2016 and kicking off with a very successful headline gig in the Workman’s Club in February 2017, they have now played gigs all over Ireland and France, with plans to tour even more in 2018, at home and abroad.
Renowned for their crazy live shows which feature mosh pits, head-banging, riff sing-a-longs, and sometimes even vegan cake, they have rapidly built a loyal fanbase in Dublin and Ireland as a whole.
Recording guitar loops live, they build huge soundscapes; ranging from math-rock inspired riffs to jazzy chord progressions.While Bicurious’ songs can often feature samples of political speakers, which aim to highlight injustices and crises in Ireland, occasional appearances from guests such as Samuel L. Jackson and Donald Trump are not unheard of either. All of this is facilitated by Gavin’s drum sample pad; the unofficial third member of the band. They released their first single Sugar Beats on the 6th of April 2017, followed by T.O.I on the 21st of July, 2017. Their début EP "I'm So Confused" landed on the 9th of March 2018, produced by Tom Peters of Alpha Male Tea Party.
The EP was launched into the world with a sold out Whelan's show, highlighting how far the band have come in less than a year and a half.
