Dublin duo Daviis have said they were 'very surprised' by the turnout to their debut concert earlier this year, and couldn't believe that their fans were able to sing along with them.

Daviis are comprised of cousins Keith Davis and Gavin Davis (they added the extra 'I' into their band name because "there are many bands called Davis" out there already) and they released their debut EP at the start of the year and sold out the upstairs in Whelan's for their very first live gig.

"We were very surprised by how many people came to our debut show and it was a real surprise when we played the last song and everyone knew the words," drummer Keith told RTÉ Entertainment.

Gavin, who sings and plays guitar, added, "Yeah I was a bit nervous because we're putting on our first show, and I kind of just got into it towards the end and then the last song, with everyone singing back the lyrics, it was so cool."

Gavin and Keith went to the same schools growing-up, and got on well, but it was only in the last few years that they realised they could make music together.

"We're cousins and we basically started in Keith's bedroom. Keith was playing in a lot of bands since he was like 16 and I was doing acoustic stuff on my own, and then we got talking. Keith saw a video of me playing acoustically at a gig in Dublin and he was like, 'I didn't know you could actually sing'."

"We had our ups and downs, I guess you could say, cousinly differences, but most of the time we were very close, we went to the same schools and stuff. I'm a year older than him so back in the day it was a big difference, but eventually we became good friends," Keith added.

Daviis are set to play in Dublin's Grand Social on October 22 and they're promising a "highly energetic" show.

"We're really excited for it; we've got some really great support acts that we're looking forward to seeing. We tried to pick some really cool acts to support us, so it's like a showcase for everyone. We're really looking forward to playing the single and showing people the new music that we've got," Gavin said.

On what concert-goers can expect from the night, Keith said, "I guess, we're quite uptempo, highly energetic, and since we're influenced by the likes of Bon Iver and James Blake and those kinds of acts, we tend to sort of have an ambient feel to the concert as well."

Daviis play the Grand Social on October 22, and their new single You and Me is out now.
