LIMERICK band Bleeding Heart Pigeons will appear on the new series of groundbreaking music series Other Voices on June 26. The band are still in their teens but have caused something of a stir on the blogosphere with their early demos on Soundcloud.com. Having only played a small number of live gigs so far, getting the coveted slot on Other Voices has been a coup for the band who received warm reviews for their performance.
