The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS -

Cal­i­for­nia band Joyce Manor – so named after an apart­ment com­plex that co-founder gui­tarist Barry Johnson, reg­u­larly walked past – be­gan as an acous­tic duo, but quickly re­alised there was a punk/pop band wedged be­tween the melodies and in­stru­ments. From 2011 on­wards, they have re­leased four al­bums that have marked them out as ones to keep a close eye on. Co-head­lin­ers Martha, mean­while, is a UK power pop act with crack­ing songs ready to rock your socks off. Ir­ish band The Win­ter Pass­ing open the show.
