The Dandy Horses latest EP ‘Hat on the Sun’ was released on 17th March 2014 and received significant airplay across Radio Ulster, U105, Blast FM and Downtown Radio. Described as ‘splendid’ by Ralph McLean, and ‘flawless’ by our very own Noelle Ellis, the band went on to successfully launch their release at a sell-out gig at the Black Box on 22nd March. The EP has also received National Airplay with Tom Robinson Introducing The Dandy Horses on his BBC 6Music mixtape. It is little wonder that Matt McCreary, Belfast Telegraph, describes the band as ‘one of Northern Ireland’s fastest growing folk acts.’
