about

Labeled as “heavy-shoegaze”, Fulvetta is Dublin’s answer to the reincarnated modern shoegaze sound. The melancholic gloom of 90s alternative echoes throughout as brooding guitar riffs drenched in reverb and fuzz intertwine with whispered layers of vocals to create an intense, yet melodic, wall of sound.

The four-piece unmistakably draws from HUM and early Smashing Pumpkins, alongside shoegaze pioneers closer to home such as my bloody valentine. Recently experimenting with infusing second-wave emo elements in the vein of Sunny Day Real Estate to their already established sound, Fulvetta creates a bite-sized piece of 90s alt-rock nostalgia.

Forming in 2021 from the remnants of previous bands, Fulvetta consists of guitarist/vocalist AJ Das, bassist/vocalist Grace MacDonnell, drummer Dylan Quinn, and guitarist Sam Nevin. The band’s debut EP, “Songbird”, arrived in 2022 under the Irish indie label Blowtorch Records. 2023 saw the release of two singles, “Lampshade” and “Disregard”, once again working with Blowtorch Records and earning comparisons to more major acts in the genre such as Narrow Head, Nothing, and Trauma Ray.
