Sister Ghost will launch their new EP on Saturday October 22 in The Pavilion Bar with support from Jealous of the Birds, Blumehaus and Mosmo Strange.
In a diversion to 3for3 usual £3 for 3 acts, they are putting on 4 bands for £5 for this special event.
All the money is used to fund the bands, using their Livecrowdfunding platform.
Sister Ghost, aka Shannon Delores O’Neill, marshals a diverse set of influences in a singular way – from Seattle punks The Gits and her guitar hero, Sonic Youth’s Lee Ranaldo, to Kate Bush and Thin Lizzy.
It’s noisy, spectral art-rock with a pop heart.
Jealous Of The Birds
Jealous of the Birds is the project of hotly tipped Irish songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Naomi Hamilton. Her debut album Parma Violets, released in May, matches introspective indie-folk with fiery post-punk.
Beautifully crafted songs have been given contrasting arrangements, veering from stripped-down acoustic guitar to full-band indie-rock anthems, all overlaid by Naomi’s compelling layered vocals. Equal parts light and shade, the songs are poignant and vulnerable, bursting with honesty and raw passion.
2016 has brought a lot for BlumeHaus (formerly BLOOM), best of which would be the close relationship they’ve forged with Belfast record label: Ram Alley Records. Over the past handful of months they’ve worked together to record BlumeHaus’ first official release; in the form of a EP to be titled “The Mystery of Sleep” and is to be released mid-to-late September. It won’t be long before BlumeHaus are back in Ram Alley to record their début, full length album.
Mosmo Strange is a new 4 piece band from Northern Ireland. What began as a songwriting project for founding members Gavin Scott and Nolan Donnelly, has come to life with the addition of Eamonn Doherty (bass) and Conor Bradley (drums) this summer. Wary of genres and labels, Mosmo aim to make you dance with their own brand of indifferent rock.
