The penultimate Gigonometry Presents… of the year features the exciting new act that is Bachram, equally energetic and entertaining LIERS, the silky smoothness of Pine the Pilcrow, and making a rare solo appearance on a break from Ana Gog, the ephemeral Adam Fleming.
Defined by their title, Bachram are a raucous Dublin based post-punk band; the old Irish roots of the name left behind by a forcible melodic rampage. Comprising of 2 Dubs, a Manc and a Brummie, the intra-archipelagic misfits fuse a myriad of interests, creating an obscure take on post punk, where complexities are lathered in an industrious driving tone, balancing sweet melodies and pure, gut-wrenching noise.
Liers are a four piece female fronted alternative rock band from Dublin Ireland. With heavy 90’s Grunge influences, their sound echoes the past but has a fresh exciting contemporary edge to it.
Pine the Pilcrow
Since their formation a little over two years ago, Pine the Pilcrow has enjoyed a busy and warm reception to the Irish music scene. The Dublin based quartet of Kevin Murray, Hannah Ryan, Shay Sweeney and Robert Campbell create original and imaginative music by combining folk, classical and traditional influences with gruff and angelic vocal harmonies. The release of their self-titled debut E.P. in March 2016 saw them nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2016 Pure M awards, winning The Last Mixed Tape’s ‘Readers EP of the Year’ award and nominated for Best Song at the IMRO Christie Hennessy Song Competition for their ambient and emotive ballad ‘Don’t Need Me’. The rest of an exciting year for the band featured performances at the Ruby Sessions, Connolly’s of Leap, Whelan’s and slots at Irish summer festivals including the main stage in the Body & Soul area at Electric Picnic, Body and Soul Festival, Arcadian Fields and Vantastival. The band sold out their first headline performance at the Civic Theatre in Tallaght and added support slots with Joe Chester at the Unitarian Church and John Spillane to the growing list of impressive live shows. 2018 sees Pine the Pilcrow release their second E.P. ( Only Ghosts) and continue to build upon their incredible debut year. Working with acclaimed photographer and film maker Donal Moloney to create a beautiful and haunting video for the single ‘Only Ghosts’ and having a work with legendary songwriter Brendan Graham in the works 2018 looks like it will be one to remember for Pine ¶he Pilcrow! Allow this band, born with a sound all of their own, to sweep you away with delicate harmonies and heartfelt songs.
