Le Boom are one of Ireland’s new music success stories having garnered
2.1 million track streams for their five single releases so far.
Christy Leech and Aimie Mallon have quickly become one of the most
sought-after new acts thanks to their energetic live show at festivals at
home in Ireland and since forming in 2016 have played The Great Escape,
Primavera Sound Pro, Electric Picnic and cities such as New York,
Reykjavik, and Bilbao.
Last November, they sold out the 1000-capacity District 8 venue in Dublin
with much bigger shows to come in 2019 along with the release of their
debut four-track EP All Of My Highs to coincide with UK dates in May
2019 and Irish and UK festivals across the summer.
Le Boom’s electro-indie-house-pop music is a rush, it starts dance parties
at festivals, venues and wherever they play. Between Leech’s falsetto
and Mallon’s manic energy, there’s an infectious buzz in their music.
Christy Leech’s songwriting and production endeavours mark him out as
one to watch, for his ability to comfortably mix pop song structures with
dance and electronic beats, bolstered and played live with an array of extra
percussion, glass bottles and cowbells by the irrepressible livewire
Aimie Mallon. What’s attracted thousands to Le Boom’s music so far is
the effortless mix of melody and body-shaking music, that never loses
sight of an earworm chorus.
The Irish duo met in Dublin after both grew up in Navan, County Meath
after experience-building with session bands. Leech’s forays into music
saw him live in an artist commune in New York where the occupants
would perform a monthly show for their building’s patron in return for
free rent. It was in here where Leech began making the music that would
resonate with many as Le Boom. Mallon is a trained dummer and musician
from BIMM in Dublin.
