    Machine Gun Baby has some very big shoes to fill. Any four-piece rock band from the north side of Dublin is going to suffer comparisons to the one with the two-character name. But Machine Gun Baby is ready to meet the challenge.

    Formed on the Northside in 2007, Stewart Keegan, Mark Ryan, Shane Ryan and Tony King started writing and playing an audacious brand of melodic rock that is just as suited to arenas and stadiums as it is to the bars and clubs of the indie scene. The boys eschew the lo-fi aesthetic for a louder, clearer sound – It's more Foo Fighters meet Kings of Leon on E Street; and yes – the relatively local influence of U2 comes through too. It's pop, its soul, but more than anything its rock at it's purest.

    Keegan's raw, powerful vocals bring depth and emotion to the pure biting rock sound that the band and their instruments produce. There's a polish to their music that belies the band's youth (they range from 19 to 22 years old) and is a hallmark of their dedication to their musicianship and their stagecraft. Machine Gun Baby are here to play, and play they shall. From the opening chords, a growling steel-stringe declaration of intent to, well – ROCK, the music doesn't so much beg as demand to be turned up to eleven.

    The boys are currently writing and performing with an almost unrivaled intensity – they're getting out there, they're getting heard and with some of the most exciting songs by a new Irish band, it won't be long before songs like 'Yes I'll Wait' and 'This Changes Everything' are on iPods and radios from Clontarf to Connemara. The next time you hear from Machine Gun Baby, you might just be singing along. For Machine Gun Baby it's today the Northside, tomorrow the world.
