The G-man & Lisa Lemur present a delicious double-header featuring Galwegian garage-popsters Dott and New Zealand dream-folk duo French For Rabbits.
This one’s set to be particularly special as the the Galway group officially launch début album Swoon and the latter will be enjoying their very first professional visit to Ireland. Dott are from Galway, Ireland and play shiny, harmony-driven garage pop. The band is led by songwriter Anna McCarthy (vocals/guitar) with Laura Finnegan (bass/vocals), Miriam Donohue (guitar/vocals) and Tony Higgins (drums). Their debut EP Button was released in 2012 on the Popical Island Collective and on 7″ vinyl with Graveface Records USA.
French for Rabbits are a dream folk duo from Wellington, New Zealand. They released debut EP Claimed by the Sea in March through the Wellington music collective ‘Home Alone Music’. Strong alternative radio airplay of the album and a growing fan base has resulted in a Best Folk Album Tui nomination for the duo. Vocalist Brooke Singer and jazz guitarist John Fitzgerald use nautical-themed language to examine stories of longing and regret in a stunning début set.
This promises to be a storming set kicking off in the Triskel Arts centre at 9.30 and for a mere 7 notes shouldn’t be missed
