    The Academic

    Embrace Presents:
    The Academic

    Made up of Craig Fitzgerald, Dean Gavin, Matthew and Stephen Murtagh, The Academic grew up in just outside the small rural Irish town of Mullingar, about an hour west of Dublin and set in the very heart of Ireland’s midlands. Meeting in secondary school, the band became firm friends through their shared of love of toasted sandwiches, Nicholas Cage movies, and of course, music, with each having their own unique influence. Bonding over a shared enthusiasm for the early 2k NYC rock revival lead by the likes of The Strokes, Interpol and Yeah, Yeah, Yeahs and that post-punk sound made an indelible ‘watermark’ on The Academic’s music.

    The Academic write indie rock stories from a personal perspective; experiences that are pertinent to their personal geography, but remain universally relatable. Their stories hinge on the central theme of growing up in a small Irish town, seeing life from the side where the grass isn’t always so green, but at the end of the day, it’s still your turf.
