FONDA are a five piece Garage rock band from Limerick Ireland. Formed in 2015, their first EP drew comparisons to the Dunedin sound of bands such as The Bats and The Chills. FONDA toured extensively in Ireland throughout 2015 before recording their second EP which featured their debut single ‘Dreaming’ that went on to be placed number seven on The Thin Air’s best Irish songs of 2016 list. They described it as “the sound of power pop having grown older and that bit more cynical...”.

Support slots to the likes of So Cow, Slow Riot, The Altered Hours and Gun Outfit followed in late 2016 as well as a short tour in Canada that included a headline slot at the legendary Silver Dollar Room in Toronto. Most recent support slots have included Fontaines DC, Just Mustard, Pillow Queens and the Altered Hours.

FONDA recorded their new EP with Chris Quigley of Cruiser in March and it’s set for release in May 2019.
