The Claque are Alan Duggan, Kate Brady and Paddy Ormond. Old friends from Dublin and familiar faces in the city’s music scene - the three started the project in 2017 with the aim of combining elements of each other’s tastes to make music that is both challenging and catchy.
The Claque's debut single Hush was released on streaming platforms on Spotify and Soundcloud last Thursday and is available for pre-order on 12” vinyl via Any Other City Records.
