Celtic Soul Punk and Indie

About Us

The Daybreakers are based in the south west of England. We are a celtic soul, punk and indie tribute band with a distinct and unique sound. Imagine The Levellers crossed with The Pogues. 


Iggy Gould - Vocals, Guitars, Banjo

Cath York - Vocals, Accordion, Violin, Viola, Flute

Chris Steel - Vocals, Drums, Percussion

Dave Renton - Vocals, Bass


We also play as an alternative folk acoustic duo under the name of Sound Affects. www.soundaffects.band

Our music blends traditional acoustic instruments with an electric back line to create a unique sound influenced by the UK classic scooter, alternative and indie scenes. 


We campaign against human inequality, class systems, exploitation, corruption, religion, racism, war, elitism and greed. We believe there are enough resources on earth to support all the worlds citizens and creatures if these resources are managed and distributed fairly. We believe our so called leaders should fight from the front themselves if they have a quarrel with another state. That's why they were elected - to lead! not hide away in an ivory tower.

Our Influences

The Waterboys, Dexys, Northern Soul, The Levellers, The Pogues, The Dubliners, The Cure, New Model Army, The Housemartins, Beautiful South, The Clash, The Wannadies, Violent Femmes, Ferocious Dog, Echo and the Bunnymen, Julian Cope, The Wonderstuff, Shed 7, Manic Street Preachers, Killing Joke, Paul Weller and everything else that is cool!
