Blending a vibrant mix of energy and musicianship with well-crafted songs Naked Animals are a finely oiled Pop/Funk machine who were born to entertain.
The Cork band consists of Ben Bickerdike on vocals, Fionn O’Neill on vocals/guitar, Mattie Barker on lead guitar, Ben Janning on bass and Cian O’ Sullivan on drums and although the band is in its infancy the members have been playing together for near a decade performing at some of Ireland and Europe’s biggest festivals. Having released their first single “My Deepest Funk” in March 2020 Naked Animals are finishing up the final touches on their debut E.P which will be out January 2021.
Drawing inspiration from the likes of Prince, Talking Heads and Republic of Loose, they’ll blow you away with their high-octane and gripping stage show.
“Seriously funky! The kind of band made for outdoors on a sunny Sunday afternoon.” – Jackie Hayden (Hotpress)
“Keepin’ the funk alive!” – Bootsy Collins (James Brown, Parliament/Funkadelic)
