Dundalk artist and multi-instrumentalist Shane Clarke aka Elephant, is set to play the Sunflower Bar on September 14.
He released second album, 88, last year to broad acclaim, through Pizza Pizza Records, Clarke has called the album “a soundtrack to my childhood and young adult life”, and delved into dark 80s synth-pop terrain. Stream '88 here.
Belfast-based duo Ex-Isles, comprising singer-songwriter Peter Devlin & composer James Joys, support. Their own singular exploration of pop was released in the form of debut LP Luxury Mass. We called it one of the best albums to emerge from Ireland in some time last year. Check it out on Bandcamp. Opening things is former singer & guitarist with the Flaws, and Elephant guitarist Somefinn, playing from his forthcoming debut album.
Tickets cost £6 from Eventbrite. Doors open at 8pm.
