Coming from humble beginnings on the outskirts of Mullingar, The Academic are one of the most exciting new bands coming out of Ireland right now and tipped for major international success.

Debut single, the Choice Music Prize nominated, “Different” which reached No.1 on iTunes and already has over 1 million plays on Spotify, quickly established the young indie band on the musical landscape in 2015 and with the follow up release of their debut EP “Loose Friends” the band have been tearing up venues across Ireland,UK and Europe with their guitar driven, infectious brand of indie rock.
