About Band

THE ALUSKAS are a three piece rock 'n' roll band based in Dublin, Ireland. The band is made up of two brothers David (guitars / bass / keys / vocals) & Anthony Byrne (drums / percussion / guitar / vocals) and soul brother Philip Tinsley (guitars / bass / keys / vocals). They have been together in bands since their school days when they were known as The Willows and had a fourth member. After that band broke up (having previously recorded little know cult LP COLLAGE), THE ALUSKAS were formed from their ashes and a conscious decision was made to remain a three piece outfit.

Going against the perception of most modern bands, THE ALUSKAS present themselves as three equal members, discarding the usual template of a frontman backed by nameless musicians. In THE ALUSKAS, it is not unusual for each band member to swap instruments and singing duties between songs. Their music blends elements of rock, indie, pop, alternative, folk, and blues. They mix a heady brew of influences such as the Beatles, Beach Boys, Neil Young, Simon & Garfunkel, Oasis, Smashing Pumpkins, Van Morrison, Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, The Frames, Gomez and Creedence Clearwater Revival to name but a few with their own sound and the unique music of THE ALUSKAS is what you get. They released their first single, Backwater Woods, on their own label Cobweb Recordings in Jan 2012 to critical success and will unleash their Debut Album, DRAW!, in the coming months. THE ALUSKAS are soon to be your favourite new Irish band
