About

Death Milkshake is an Irish multi-instrumentalist live looping artist who fuses electronic sounds with an alternative rock edge, creating a unique beat driven hybrid sound.


Taking inspiration from electronic acts like Digitalism, Daft Punk, and LCD Soundsystem, simple driving beats underpin Bass guitar and synth tones layered beneath heavily effected vocals.  The performance is essentially fully live electronica, created by playing instruments rather than triggering samples. The danceable disco-punk songs produced have natural flow and dynamics, and in the main, take cues from electronic dance music, post punk and progressive rock with Lyrical content ranging from deliberate social commentary to utterly ridiculous nonsense.


The Death Milkshake project was launched in 2022 with appearances at ‘Éalú Le Grá’ and ‘Night And Day’ music festivals secured on the strength of home-studio live looping videos, before any official single releases. 2023 included more Irish festival slots including All Together Now, Livestock and BallaghDream, as well as the release of the first Death Milkshake single (Shiny Thing) along with accompanying left-field one-shot video, shot on a busy Galway street.


Follow up single ‘Megaphone’ was released in January 2024. Both Shiny thing and Megaphone received airplay on a number of national and regional radio stations in Ireland, including RTE Radio 1, Today FM, 8 Radio Ireland and RTE 2XM, with the latter being chosen as the ‘Nessy-Recommends’ track of the week on RTE 2XM during it’s release week. The third single ‘Algorithm’ will follow on March 6th 2024, with the Full debut Death milkshake EP (6 tracks – mixed & co-produced by Daithi at Aspen Lane studio, Co. Clare) to be released on April 17th 2024. 2024 will also include a run of live shows in support of the EP, and a number of summer festival appearances (Announcements coming soon)
