Fred and Bob


Contrary to what the name may suggest, Fred and Bob is actually a Dublin based, four-piece alternative band consisting of three girls and one boy. The band has been tipped by 2FM’s Dan Hegarty as an act to watch in 2011. The band are currently promoting their new single, Caramel Back, the perfect antidote to the winter blues, which can be heard on 2FM, Today FM and Phantom FM.

Some people say the nicest things: Dan Hegarty (2FM): “Dublin's Fred & Bob are not a duo just in case you're wondering.

They do however have a habit of writing the kind of songs that The Breeders, Sleater Kinney and Veruca Salt would have given their eye teeth for during the 90s!

In Emma Greenhalgh they have a fearsome vocalist..." Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
