Celtic goddesses of rock at Róisin

Mollie McGinn and Orlaith Forsythe

Irish duo Dea Matrona’s Irish and British tour comes to Galway on Sunday, May 19.

Named for gods of ancient mythology, the Belfast girls will play the Róisín Dubh to celebrate the release of their album For Your Sins last week.

Dea Matrona comprises two school friends, Mollie McGinn and Orlaith Forsythe, who grew up busking to their favourite rock 'n' roll anthems on the streets of Belfast. Influences include Fleetwood Mac, HAIM, The White Stripes and Arctic Monkeys.

Their debut album includes brand new single 'Stuck on You', out now. With a crashing bassline and heavy instrumental groove, 'Stuck On You' carries the band's ethos of bold, sensational rock with a modern twist. Catapulting and captivating, the song tells of being hopelessly drawn to someone's charm.

“‘Stuck on You’ basically wrote itself after multiple insomniac nights. After taking a break from touring, we both locked ourselves away for a while and I think this song sums up how crazy it drove us. It was initially written as an instrumental and it was the most challenging track on the record to produce. It will be very exciting to bring these songs on the road with us in May & see how people react in real life".
