Beyond the Wash is the solo project of Irish songwriter Patrick O’Donnell. Crafting a mix of energetic pop and throwback New Wave, the Waterford native worked under a handful of monikers before using the Beyond the Wash name in 2018, inspired by that favourite white Tee that enters the colour wash. The result is a diverse blend of influences (including Christine and the Queens, Bon Iver, Peter Gabriel and FKA twigs), a project of varied shades that creates conceptual music made clear in the sounds on the Murmurings//ep. Two singles marked 2019, the atmospheric Misty Morning and the stomping Dusktime. The later was accompanied by a music video featured by global arts and cultural platforms and Director's Notes. Artistic fluidity is at the core of Beyond the Wash’s vision with multiple collaborations in other creative fields such as dance, design and visual arts. Their first single of 2020, Uruguay traces the artists journey, while latest single Sand embraces the dark and twisted. 
 Coming off the back of shows in Whelans, Coughlans Live, Lost Lane and the world renowned Ruby Sessions. Beyond the Wash closed 2020 with a performance at LIMF (Liverpool Irish Music Festival) and Ireland Music Week 2020. New music incoming for 2021. 
 "a nimble, multifaceted artist capable of delivering uptempo bangers and plaintive, melodic songs with observationalist lyrics." - Stephen Byrne New Irish Music - GoldenPlec's Fresh Friday
