Fracas formed after Paul and Maria returned from a year of steady gigging in Australia and hooked up with Kieran who had been playing in Galway. Boasting 3 singer/songwriters there is no one 'front (wo)man'. The sound ranges from blues to trad to indie-pop, to whatever the song demands.
The dynamic of the live set is heightened by much instrument-swapping.
Fracas are ably helped by Conor on Saxophone and Bob on Bass/Guitar and Sound.
Since making the demo 'Failte' last year they have had a few adventures into recording/producing themselves, making the recent EP ' Abhaile', which features David on guitar for 'Mr.Wolf.'
Fracas were founder members of The Defective Collective, who released the compilation "The Collectivites" given 3 stars in a Hotpress album review.
Recent developments see Fracas hosting the Melting Pot, an open stage at Sin in Temple Bar on Tuesday nights, and launching their website (www.fracas.ie) Orla is currently adding fiddle parts to some of Fracas' arrangements. Recording commences this month with a view to an EP/ Album.
