Singular Artists presents Conchúr White

Main Room, Saturday 4th May, Doors – 7:30pm

Following excellent reviews for his debut album Swirling Violets, released this week via Bella Union, Conchúr White shares a charming animated video for new single “501s” directed by Eliot Charof. Commenting on the track White says: “501s is one of the more pop leaning tracks on the album. Lyrically it was inspired by my experiences as a teenager, predominantly across the backdrop of a now defunct cinema, arcade and bowling complex which I would frequent most weekends. There is a strong element of nostalgia embedded in the track that alludes to young love, infatuation and general mischief.” Watch the video HERE.

Acclaim for Swirling Violets:

“His debut has a lyrical sophistication and thematic weight that lends real impact… Exploring mortality, addiction and compulsion,

White is adept with mood and dynamics and has a falsetto that recalls Angelo De Augustine.” MOJO – 4 stars **** 

“A gentle gem… You may be reminded of Sufjan Stevens in his soft-sung approach, and the warm, organ-accompanied ‘501s’ is shot through with yearningly nostalgic reference points…

Creamy harmonies also enhance the redemptive melancholia  of ‘Fawn’ as if he’s bottled up some West Coast air and let is loose in the studio..” Uncut – 8/10

“Luminous folk-pop… A magic-realist beauty brimming with lyrical layers and graceful melodies.” Record Collector – 4 stars ****

“An enchanting debut album… Conchúr White has gifted us a fully developed style and message.” Clash – 8/10

“Conchúr White has laid down a serious marker for Irish debut album of the year with Swirling Violets, a collection of indie earworms that sound better with each listen.” Irish Times – 4 stars ****

A hugely impressive debut that gets better with each listen.” Hot Press – 9/10
