Eoin Dolan is a songwriter and producer from Galway, a seaside town on the west coast of Ireland. His music combines sublime and sometimes heartbreaking melody with lush instrumentation and a classic songwriting finesse to create a vintage psychedelic pop sound.
"Airy voice and effortless melodies form a fine transatlantic conductor for West Coast pop warmth."
"Makes eerily majestic psych-pop imbued with incredible individuality, matching Syd Barrett's cracked style against Brian Wilson's pristine pop."
"On his third full-length LP, Commander of Sapiens, Galway musician Eoin Dolan underscores his status as one of the country’s finest songwriters."
"Gives you that feeling of losing and finding yourself all at once."
"A confident breeze with a dark underbelly."
"A Galway musician who channels the Beach Boys’ sunny warmth like no other in the country."
"Brimming with yearning lyrical finesse and a panoply of alt-pop twists and turns."
"Dolan [has a] knack for crafting sci-fi-tinged surf pop, marrying heartbreaking melodies and gentle instrumentation, sadness with beauty and interstellar psych-pop exploration with the imagery and atmosphere of a vintage seaside town."
