(UK (Northern Ireland))
Hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland, Albuquerque are a unique proposition. Lead singer Paul Shevlin, winner of the BPI / BRIT Awards sponsored ‘Next BRIT Thing’ has a distinctive voice, combining emotion, character and texture. The band have been compared to the likes of Imagine Dragons, Snow Patrol and Biffy Clyro.
They have recently been working with the likes ofAlex Davies, Mats Valentin (Sweden) as well as Ben Mark and Joe Cleere. The band emanate energy and angst, frustration and emotion, which perhaps is no surprise coming from a country with a legacy of tension. Currently working on material for their debut release, they are co-managed by Tileyard Music in London and Starshaped Music in Belfast.
