Hailing from Belfast in Northern Ireland, ABQ are a unique proposition. Lead singer Paul Shevlin, winner of the BPI / BRIT Awards sponsored ‘Next BRIT Thing’ has a distinctive voice, combining emotion, character and texture that certainly gives this outfit an undeniable edge. The band have been compared to the likes of Imagine Dragons, Snow Patrol and Biffy Clyro. They have recently been working with the likes of Alex Davies (Elliot Minor, Frances), Mats Valentin (Carpark North, Backyard Babies, MY) as well as James Walsh (Starsailor), Ben Langmid (La Roux) and Ben Mark (Take That, George Ezra). The band emanate angst, frustration and emotion through their music. Coupled with an energetic and slick live show, ABQ are set to move from strength to strength with each release.
