Slacker’s Symphony are a Dublin based band consisting of brothers Ed and James Grannell along with Nathan Maher, Marcin Nowak and Brian Mannion.
The band took to the legendary venue Whelans to launch their debut EP Summer’s Coming. The night was kicked off by Not Monsters who delivered a fantastic opening set consisting of heavy melodic originals and a powerful cover of David Bowie’s I’m Afraid of Americans.
Slacker’s Symphony took the stage and delivered one of the most diverse and energetic sets I’ve seen. They started the show with some tracks off their new EP, industrial rock with a splash of electronic synth on top. They then moved onto some of their older material, slightly slower songs with grooving bass and guitar with pop hooks. There was never a dull moment in the set thanks to the eccentric showmanship of singer Ed Grannell. Highlights of the evening include the bands second single Outside, which was performed twice due to crowd demand.
