Popical Island is a small, hard-working collective of bands and like minded souls who work together to organise events and releases. Popical Island is not a record label; the bands own their recordings and copyright 100%.
Popical Island is based in Dublin. Formed by the bands Land Lovers, Yeh Deadlies and Groom in 2010, it also is home to some of Ireland’s most exciting pop bands, including Tieranniesaur, Squarehead, Pantone 247 and Grand Pocket Orchestra. We have released 2 compilations, Popical Island #1 and #2. These compilations introduced the world to many’s the poptastic upstart, like Rhino Magic, Goodly Thousands and Feed the Bears, while featuring gems from the catchiest indie tune-slingers from across the country – your So Cows and your No Monster Clubs.
The collective also curates a monthly club night, Popicalia, where attendees typically wear their best cardigans and slacks and sometimes have sex in the jacks. Popical Island has put out new releases by Yeh Deadlies, Groom, Tieranniesaur, Walpurgis Family, Land Lovers, Patrick Kelleher & Squarehead, Grand Pocket Orchestra, Big Monster Love and Jonny Fun and the …Hesitations.
