Glasgow 6 piece, Washington Irving's rousing, raucous, richly-hued indie-folks has once them comparisons to likes of Arcade Fire, the Band, the Waterboys and the Pogues. Their debut UP produced by Marcus Mackay (Frightened Rabbit, Snow Patrol, Sparrow & The Workshop), received airplay from the likes of Vic Galloway and Huw Stephens on Radio 1, as well as being firmly supported by BBC 6 Music's Tom Robinson.
The band have sold out King Tuts, toured the UK and Ireland, and enjoyed a summer of festivals taking in likes of Camp Bestival, Thythm Festival, Stockton Weekender.
"Their melding of folks songs with sleek, modern pop proved invigorating to watch…Best of all, their material had a raucous nature that made it impossible not to leave in strident spirit."(The Herald)
