Spearside – ‘Bus Stop’

Hailing from Dublin, the superb band Spearside have released the must-hear single ‘Bus Stop’. It is an alternative-rock release that needs to be on your new music playlist this week.

An attention-demanding opening greets the listener. The jangly guitars instantly fill the piece with a luscious texture and as the band enters, the energy rises.

In addition, the charismatic vocals take the listener by the hand, and the memorable melodies stay with the audience long after the music has ended.

We adore the driving guitars and dynamic rhythm section that propel the track forward. Spearside is a band leading the alt-rock genre forward in 2022, and we can not wait to hear what will come next!

Band Members

Spearside are comprised of brothers Oisín (vocals/guitar), Cian Walsh (vocals/bass), and bandmate Dylan Zovich (drums). They are excellent musicians in their respective fields, but when they play together, magic happens.


Oisín says about the release, “I wrote ‘Bus Stop’ when I was 17; it was the very first song I wrote with the idea of starting a band. ‘Bus Stop’ came after months of listening to all the great young Ulster punk bands from Good Vibrations Records. For some reason, Ulster bands understand the noisy, melodic guitar-pop thing in a completely unique way.”

He continues, “The 70s had the likes of The Undertones, the 90s had Ash. All teenagers, writing great songs. When I was 17, I thought, ‘well, if they could do it, maybe I can give it a go’.”


Spearside cites their influences as coming from bands such as The Byrds, The Stooges, Badfinger, The Saints, Agent Orange, Dinosaur Jr, and Teenage Fanclub. One thing is for sure, Spearside stands shoulder to shoulder with these awesome bands.

So, listen to ‘Bus Stop’ this week; you will not be disappointed!
