COLUMBIA MILLS was a building based on Dublin’s Quays. In the early 90s the building became a mecca for the illegal rave scene bringing people together from all walks of life and all musical tastes. It was all about inclusion, something Columbia Mills believe very strongly in.

The diversity of music and social classes is something that has left a lasting impression on the city and has not been rediscovered since the police put an end to the institution in an early morning raid in the mid 90's.

Based between Dublin and Wicklow in Ireland, the band have embraced the liberal ethos of the Columbia Mills era to both musical tastes and social equality. They have shaped their musical style with a guitar driven sounds and emphasis on electronic foundations. Having released two EPs to wide critical acclaim, their debut single ‘Never Gonna Look At You The Same’ was play listed on Today FM and TXFM in Dublin and was also picked up by Radio X in London. Their music has been described as dark, ambient, emotive but with an almost deep south sensibility. Think Joy Division playing the Grand Ole Opry.

Columbia Mills released their debut album 'A Safe Distance To Watch' on Nov 7th 2018. Produced by Rob Kirwan (Hozier, Depeche Mode, U2, ) . Lead single Battles was A listed on Today FM followed in quick succession by follow up singles Headstart & This City Doesn't Feel Like Home. New single 'Close To You' out now and will be taken from their forthcoming album (due 2019)
