Info: Le Boom  are one of Ireland’s new music success stories having garnered 600k + streams for their two singles thus far. Christy Leech and Aimie Mallon have quickly become one of the most sought-after new acts in Irish music. Their electronic house-pop is a rush, it starts dance parties. Between Leech’s falsetto and Mallon’s manic percussive energy, there’s an infectious buzz in their music.

Since the band formed in Summer of 2016, the duo have brought their electro-indie-house-pop show to cities such as New York, Reykjavik, Cork, Belfast, Galway, their hometown of Dublin and festivals like Latitude, Body&Soul, Electric Picnic Truck Festival, Castlepalooza and Independence.

LE BOOM's debut single release, 'What We Do', received airplay on both US and Irish radio. It featured in the Summer 2017 ad campaign for Vodafone and has over 325k plays on Spotify. 

The band’s third single 'Coma' was released on April 6th ahead of appearances at The Great Escape and Primavera this summer and a sold out 650-cap Button Factory gig in Dublin city.

With new single 'Coma' electronic pair Le Boom once again manage to transfer their high-energy live show into the studio, having made themselves a consistent must-see festival act, cemented last year with highlight performances at Forbidden Fruit and Metropolis to name but two. The new track makes great use of their trademark fat drum-pad beat and percussion as well as Leech's high-pitched chorus punch. To my ears at least it has that classic sun-kissed electronic dance festival vibe, and the opening verse nods its cap to the likes of MGMT's bouncing 'Electric Feel'. From the outside it seems like the duos patience and restraint in releasing singles is paying off, on a personal note I'm still not tired of 'Don't Need It Now', one of my Top 5 Irish single releases from last year.
