What: an edgy 4 piece indie rock band.

Where: Dublin.

When: Whelan’s, Dublin Feb 28th.

Why: Because they’re starting to take risks and their sound is out of the top drawer. That’s the why :)





Fresh out of the box and in hot demand at the moment, 2016 is looking like it’s going to be some year for these talented boys. 2015 saw them touring the Irish circuit with appearances at Indiependence and Rocktoberfest to name but a few. They’ve captured the attention of not only Irish radio but UK radio as well and Hot Press seem to be big fans of theirs which, makes us think… you really shouldn’t miss out on seeing these guys live Feb 28th at Whelan’s.

Young? Indeed they are. Got the potential and the drive to progress? We certainly think so. 



Just some of the REVIEWS so far… 

Hot Press: “Bristling with energy and attitude, their music is buzzing with the sort of vitality that gets mosh-pits pogoing and excited crowds singing along. It’s riff-heavy rock that nods to the past whilst maintaining a thoroughly modern edge.”
Golden Plec on 1st EP – Dirty Birds: “this EP is tightly condensed, rough round the edges in a good way and full of youthful self assured-ness. It all adds up to confirmation that The Klares have raw potential and are ones to watch.”
U&I Magazine on 2nd EP – Cookoo: “…could very well be the first Irish band in a generation to actually get excited about.”
The Last Mixed Tape: “The sound of the Klare’s is that of the buzzing street lights, humming city traffic and the cavernous echo of concrete. There’s youthful frustration behind Cookoo, the whole E.P. teems with an aggressive impatience that is truly infectious.” “The Klares are an exciting prospect for the future of the music industry in Ireland.” “Sounding even better live than they do in their recordings, The Klares are a ‘one to watch’.”
