It's that time of the year nearly every Irish bands gets to update their status with 'We're Playing The Picnic'. To help you find the best bands on the schedule before you get to Stradbally I'll be picking ten relatively unknown bands for you to find at Electric Picnic.
Part 3 - Maud in Cahoots http://maudincahoots.com/
Maud in Cahoots are sisters Maud & Zoe from Dublin but now like many Irish bands are based in London. Two years ago they won the first Arthur's Day competition and won a support slot to Snow Patrol. They describe themselves as 'Alternative Pop' but with cello and violin at the core of their sound, 'Maud in Cahoots' are a distinctly unique entity.
Catch 'Maud in Cahoots' on the Body & Soul mainstage over the Electric Picnic weekend. I got to see the band in Crawdaddy supporting The Brad Pitt Light Orchestra and they were a quality band back then. With two years in London perfecting their sound I can only imagine how good they'll be at Electric Picnic.
