What you may need to know…

01. Dublin four-piece Mongoose bring together a wide pool of influences to create folk with an alternative tinge.

02. Coming together in 2012, the release of the band’s self-titled debut album last year follows a clutch of self-released singles and extended-players.

03. Streaming above is Doing Things Wrong, a single released earlier this year in solidarity with the Repeal the Eighth campaigns.

04. They’ve recently been curating their own line-ups of musical and spoken word artists, in a series of gigs called Winter Longing. Next up: Levis’ of Ballydehob on Saturday night, with Anna Mieke Bishop and more in support.

Verdict: Solid and spirited jazz/folk with a keen melodic sensibility.
