David Geraghty returns to action with a 'Victory Dance'
Easily one of the best Irish albums of the decade, David Geraghty's 2007 debut album Kill Your Darlings was a delightful surprise. Taking time out from his day-job as multi-instrumentalist member of Bell X1, he crafted a stunningly accomplished record that found room for haunting, sparse atmospherics, alternately wistful and wracked folk tunes, and one rousing hoedown in 'Kaleidoscope'.
Geraghty's second album, titled The Victory Dance, is released on Friday, August 28, preceded by the lead track, 'Tuesday's Feet', which is available online now. He'll also be touring the country, starting with an appearance at the Electric Picnic.
Saturday 5 September Electric Picnic, Stradbally, Co. Laois
Wednesday 9 September The Pavilion, Cork
Friday 11 September The Roisin Dubh, Galway
Saturday 12 September Upstairs, Dolans, Limerick
Sunday 13 September De Barra’s, Clonakilty, Cork
Tuesday 15 September The Spirit Store, Dundalk
Wednesday 16 September The Button Factory, Dublin
Gotta say I'm looking forward to this one.
