“Delightfully styled…sweet and sentimental yet made up of substance and reckoning” (U&I Music Magazine)
"So unassuming…could really get under your skin” (Donna Legge, BBC NI)
“The Safety of Sleep is a great piece of songwriting...a dreamy alt-rocker, achieving a very memorable mood...a majestic chorus...showing the artist’s talents in vocal and instrumentation work” (Obscure Sound)

Dave Thomas O’Gorman is a Paris-born indie artist based in Dublin.
His new single, "Save Me from Satellites (Say You Will)" will be officially released on 29th October 2020.
"Satellites" is the follow-up to "The Safety of Sleep": a track aptly described by Obscure Sound as a "dreamy alt-rocker" and "a great piece of songwriting".
Dave performed his unique brand of wistful indie folk rock at the Longitude Festival in 2016, followed by an appearance with Feist at the O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire, London in 2017. A taster single, “The Sweetest Blood” was digitally released in 2017.
Dave's first official solo single, "I See You Through the Slideshows" was released in late 2018 to much acclaim in the indie music community:
"a musical dreamscape with a flowing melody that’s beautiful as it is catchy...This song should be a major hit" (Glenn W Love)
"I cannot begin to express how much I love this song...I also don't know why it isn't a worldwide hit. BBC2 should be playing it all the time!" (Autumn Dawn Leader)
Dave’s music has featured on radio both nationally and internationally on stations such as BBC, RTE, Newstalk FM, FM104, Dublin City FM and Near FM.
A former winner of the all-Ireland Slogadh music competition, Dave continued his musical journey with a series of solo EPs, a commercial album release under the artist name Square Revolution and with live performances all over Ireland. Dave has had the privilege of headlining the esteemed Ruby Sessions as well as performing in leading venues such as Whelan's and The Sugar Club.
Dave holds an MPhil in Music & Media Technologies from Trinity College Dublin and also studied Music Production for Video Games & Film at Griffith College and Pulse College, Windmill Lane.
