Dublin band clay pigeon shooting have cultivated a blistering live sound since emerging on the scene in early 2022.
The five-piece have already sold out The Workman’s Club and Whelan’s with their head-turning shows, and they recently supported London-based post-punk favourites deep tan.
Following their debut single ‘Vincent Van Pox’ last Octover, clay pigeon shooting release new single ‘i win!’ this Friday, March 24th and play The Grand Social, Dublin on March 25th.
1. What’s the music that you listened to growing up, that you still listen to today?
Traditional Irish music surrounds us all in a particular way and it’s something we will always come back to!
2. In three words, describe the minute before you walk on stage
Supa F***in’ Awesome.
3. How do you wind down after a gig?
We like to chillax post-gig with our closest friends over quiet pints in an old man pub. Here, we sit back and reminisce on times gone by over a slightly heated game of Buckaroo.
4. What’s the one song (by another artist) you wish you’d written or recorded first?
‘Redemption Song’ – Bob Marley & The Wailers.
5. What is your pet peeve?
The band are frequently affected by technical gremlins including, but not limited to: Hex-Bugs! Those pesky buggers are always ruining our day.
6. Name one record, one book and one film that everyone should hear / read / see.
Album – ‘Voodoo’ by D’Angelo
Book – ‘Holes’ by Louis Sachar
Film – ‘Marley And Me’, dir. David Frankel
7. Pick the director and lead actor(s) for a biopic about your life.
Directed by James Cameron, starring Jim Carrey.
8. You’re ordering take-away, what do you get?
After poring over multiple food apps, weighing out the pros of cons of each delicatessen, more often than not we as a band find ourselves, time and time again, getting sent for a hotdog.
9. Describe your perfect day off.
Wake up at 3pm, wipe the crust from our eyes, enjoy a long, wide satisfying yawn, go back to sleep to dream of petrol go-karting!
10. Tell us, in one sentence, why we should come to your next gig (whenever it may be.)
You can win too!
