Fronted by Keith Mannion, Donegal psychedelic electronic act Slow Place Like Home returned last week with one of the Irish tracks of the year so far, ‘Echoes’. The second single to be lifted from the band’s forthcoming album, When I See You…Ice Cream, the track – which features vocals from Fearghal McKee of ’90s cult Irish alt rocker Whipping Boy – now comes bolstered by a stellar video courtesy of Michael Liston. Filmed on location in July in and around Ballyshannon and Dicey Reillys in Donegal, it very nicely reflects the song’s nocturnal, otherworld sway. Slow Place Like Home play Electric Picnic…
One of the downright catchiest songs we’ve heard from a new Irish act in ages, Dublin duo Gary Harding and James McGuire AKA Darling have unveiled their debut single, ‘Echoes’. A starry-eyed, three-and-a-half-minute hit in the making – calling to mind everyone from Two Door Cinema Club to Ed Zealous – the track was produced by Stephen Lipson, an English producer/engineer who has worked with the likes of Annie Lennox and Pet Shop Boys. Check out the Feel Good Lost-directed video to the song below.
