BBC RADIO'S ACROSS THE LINE
From the sumptuous suburbs of Dundalk and trendy potholes
of Emyvale come Accidents in the Workplace,
A 9 piece funk band, who's blend of funk, rock, blues
and "other" creates the musical equivalent
of sprinkling salt and pepper on a bowl of ice cream.
Accidents In The Workplace were formed in 2016 and made
their live debut that summer. A string of captivating
performances at various festivals and renowned venues
over the past few years has earned them a reputation
of being a must see act. Their influences range from
Prince to Celine Dion to Rage Against The Machine.
Accidents' debut single "How?" was released
in March 2017 and received rave reviews and airplay
on RTE 2FM, 2XM and BBC Radio where the song was featured
as BBC Introducing?s "Track of the Day". Their
most recent release "The One You Love" featured
on Nialler 9, hotpress, Joe.ie and was listed in Remys
top 25 Irish singles of 2018.
Accidents' had a busy 2018 from playing support to
the likes of The Strypes and Jerry Fish in Dublin, to
an Irish tour with US rap-rock band Crazytown in June.
Over the summer they have made several festival appearances
including two performances at Northern Ireland's Sunflowerfest
before travelling to Aranmore Island for a headlining
slot at Swell Festival. Expect to hear a lot more from
them over the coming months.....
"Accidents in the Workplace blend funk and blues
into their classic rock template, their hypnotic lead
singer, Lauren Murphy, is like a Gothic Stevie Nicks
with bright red hair, a florescent crucifix, and shimmering
butterfly wings hanging from her outstretched arms as
she performs." puremzine.com
"Super shows, that voice is to die for. Amazing."

Dan Hegarty - 2FM / 2XM
"This band always make me smile. Lauren Murphy
is such an entertaining performer and she seems to radiate
a bubbly bright persona all the time. She dances and
grooves with humorous facial expression in between and
with a vocal power that could wrestle you to the ground
she is fast becoming my favourite female vocalist. It's
feel-good music at its best and their beaming perky
faces are such a welcoming sight that makes their set
a delight to watch."
