Long one of the best live bands on the island, have a listen to RQ's incredible second albumPlays Hard To Get, which came in at #3 on our Irish albums of the year, and was nominated for the NI Music Prize. They've been described as Ornette Coleman-meets-Fugazi, and we'd be hard pushed to disagree, if you filter in some Robert Wyatt as a midpoint.
Instrument-swapping Northern Irish indie-psych quartet Junk Drawer are about to release their debut album, Ready For The House. They recently won the NI Music Prize for Best Single 2019 for the Silver Jews-recalling 'Year of the Sofa'.
Opening things is a one-off collaboration between experimental musician Icebearand sonic/visual artist Olivia Furey to finish up their Irish tour together.
