Humanzi are an alternative indie rock quartet hailing from Dublin, Ireland. Band
members are Shaun Mulrooney (guitar, keys, lead vocals); Colm Rutledge (Guitar,
vocals); Gary Lonergan (Bass); and Brian Gallagher (Drums, vocals).
Humanzi combines guitars with dance beats and their sound shows influences
spanning classic rock n roll, to Punk Rock and Dark electronic music. They cite
as their main influences, Primal Scream, The Clash, Velvet Underground, Joy
Division and The Stooges. Their dance background is informed by the likes of
Depeche Mode, Daft Punk, Peaches and LCD Soundsystem.
The Humanzi signature sound is fraught and claustrophobic, and the themes of
their tracks are often heavily politicized.

the Cracks’ on 7th November 2005. This was followed by ‘Long Time Coming’ single
release in 13th February 2005. Their latest single, ‘Diet, Pills & Magazines’
