GoldenPlec considers the band’s debut album ‘Busy Waiting’ as “musically undeniably fresh and exciting.” The ten track release mixed and mastered by Jim Fox, Lion & Fox studios “serves up a smooth relaxing vibe with tight reggae roots, rhythms and nice brass melodies complementing wonderfully soulful female vocals” (Do the Dog Music). While describes them as having “strong and confident songs, the production values and the mature feel of both the instrumentation and the vocals.”

After the Ibis’ live performances have wowed crowds from the stages of Ireland’s best festivals including Electric Picnic, Vantastival, and Body & Soul.  Their latest release Sober is a “fast paced beat coupled with on-point musicality of the After The Ibis group; delivering a single that is almost perfectly set for the summer/festival season”.
