Belfast-based singer-songwriter Peter Devlin & composer James Joys, aka Ex-Isles are set to play the Strand Arts Centre on March 1.
Having worked together in the past on various projects over the years, they returned to Belfast after 15 years of living away, leading to their own singular exploration of pop, in the form of debut LP Luxury Mass. Blackly comic, the album comes the vein of iconoclasts like Scott Walker, ANOHNI, John Grant and the likes, with Joys arranging and producing. We called it one of the best albums to emerge from Ireland in some time last year. Check it out on Bandcamp.
Tickets cost £8, available from the Strand Arts Centre. Doors open at 8pm, and it's a BYO event.
