Deep Sky Objects
Deep Sky Objects are a three-piece alternative-rock band. The band members include brothers Kevin O'Brien (lead vocals, guitar), Thomas O'Brien (drums and backing vocals) and DD Foley (bass guitar and backing vocals).

The band began to record a collection of demos, releases under 'We're Done Falling'. With the completion of five tracks the band mixed their material at 'Sonas Studios' in Killarney. The tracks were then mastered by Ruairi O’Flaherty in Los Angeles.
Since then Deep Sky Objects have recorded their debut self-titled EP 'Deep Sky Objects' in Whitewell Studios with Ciaran O'Shea. The EP was subsequently mastered by Fergal Davis. 'Deep Sky Objects' received great feedback from fans and reviewers, being played on stations such as Today FM, Spin SW and Cork's 96 FM. Deep Sky Objects continued to tour Ireland and the UK throughout 2017/18
