Sun Mahshene


Rhythm Guitar, Lead Guitar.


Hailing from Dublin, Ireland, Sun Mahshene emerged in 2018, breathing new life into the Indie and Shoegaze scenes. Comprising six diverse members from Ireland, the United Kingdom, and Poland, Sun Mahshene provide a musical journey that transcends genres. ‘Post-Shoegaze’ for the masses.

In 2020, the band unleashed the "Contradictions & Tales of Fiction" EP, a sonic exploration that left audiences craving more. Following the EP's success, including track “Leave This City” (42k Spotify streams), next single “The Righteous One” was accompanied by a mind-bending music video, directed by award-winning visual artist Ste Murray.

Sun Mahshene next released a special LP titled "Space Echoes: The EPs", a compilation of tracks from their previously released EPs. The limited-edition vinyl sold out in one day, a testament to the band's dedicated fanbase and the allure of their music.

Having graced the stage at Electric Picnic, Ireland's largest music festival, Sun Mahshene showcased their live act with headline shows (including Whelan’s and The Workman’s Club), which solidified their presence in the hearts of music enthusiasts.

September 2023 marked the release of the single "Reverie", which immediately went on rotation on Amazing Radio UK (winning an online vote to make the playlist), BBC Radio 1, BBC Across The Line, Radio X, and across Irish radio (RTE 2FM, 98FM). The high-energy video has now reached over 32k views on YouTube.

Second single “New Shores'' immediately picked up radio play on BBC, RTE, and once again won the online "audition poll" on Amazing Radio UK. "New Shores" is the perfect follow up to “Reverie”; energetic yet reflective, providing a glimpse into the sonic odyssey that awaits listeners with the highly anticipated debut LP, "A Place We've Never Been”. This promises to be a culmination of the band's artistic evolution, mastered by Mark Gardener of Ride. His expertise at the controls sets the stage for the album to captivate music fans in summer 2024.
