Alarmist are an instrumental four-piece from Dublin, who formed in 2008. They are Neil Crowley, Elis Czerniak, Osgar Dukes and Barry O'Halpin.
All members are multi-instrumentalists, playing an equal role in bringing together the organic and electronic elements that form their sound.
This hugely talented band build their songs from tightly wound melodies and frenetic rhythms, a blend of interlocking guitars, glitchy electronics, dueling percussion and rich wind arrangements.
In August 2011, they released their self-titled debut EP through Dublin label Eleven Eleven receiving much critical acclaim drawing comparisons to big hitters Battles and Tortoise. The same year they featured in 'Ones To Watch' lists for Ragged Words, fourohfive.com, Le Cool, State.ie and Hot Press. They also polled in Nialler9's Top 10 Best New Irish Acts and Best Irish EPs of 2011.
