This Dublin band will have their music showcased in the new Eastenders spin-off Redwater.

Pursued By Dogs – a four-piece band made up of Andrew Brennan, Ronan Marr, Suzanne Purcell and Dave Sheehan – had a number of their tracks selected by the producers of the series based in Dunmore East, Waterford.

The programme will follow the soap’s favourite couple Kat and Alfie Moon as they return to Ireland to track down the son that Kat gave up for adoption when she was a teenager.

The producers of the BBC production were keen to showcase Irish music – in particular up and coming bands – in the six part series.

Pursued By Dogs singer Andrew Brennan said: "As a Dublin band, we were honoured to be included in the inaugural series of Redwater. Especially alongside other amazing Irish acts such as Little Green Cars, Kila and Ham Sandwich. “The show kicks off the same weekend as our launch show in the Workmans Club, so it's pretty fortuitous timing."

The band are gearing up for the release of their debut album with a series of releases and gigs over the summer. ‘A Tunnel / Whiskey Ruin EP is the first release from the band’s debut album, recorded by producer James Darkin at Temple Lane and Herbert Place Studios.

Pursued By Dogs video for ‘A Tunnel’ was filmed in Dublin city centre, around Camden Street and Dame Street by Vincent Snel.

The band’s sound has been described as ‘indietronica’, but they prefer this description “…at the line between sad and blissful, a fuzzy end-of-the-night type of music that’s simultaneously affecting and rousing.”
