Seven Quarters kick off their second year with their 5th night in Whelan’s on Friday 27th February, with Alarmist & Somadrone
Tickets are on sale now priced at €10 (including booking fee), with the first 150 tickets including a limited edition 7″ featuring Somadrone & Alarmist.
Within their configuration of electric guitars, percussion, synths and winds, Alarmist channel their combined backgrounds in post-rock, jazz, electronica and contemporary composition into a unique sound world that pits rhythmic intricacy and twisting melodies against hazy ambience and dense arrangements of organic and electronic timbres.
Since the release of their 2011 self-titled debut EP, Alarmist have established themselves as a standout act on Dublin’s independent music scene, gaining a reputation for their dynamic, arresting performances with kaleidoscopic visuals by projection artists Slipdraft.
Irish Producer Somadrone has been making electronic music for 16 years and has toured Europe, US, Asia and Australia as member of Dublin’s cult band Redneck Manifesto and Jape. His 2010 LP, Depth of Field received critical acclaim and was compared to the likes of Ryuichi Sakamoto, David Sylvian and Brian Eno. The First Wave,released in 2013, recorded in San Francisco, Dublin and Brooklyn, the record incorporates analogue drum machines, synthesizers, guitar and vocals that results in a cross pollinating, genre-less, electronic sound-scape.
Whelan’s, Wexford Street
8pm, Friday 27th February
Tickets are €10 and are available from WAV Tickets.
(The name of the club Seven Quarters is based on the idea of the word seven referring to a 7” inch vinyl and the Quarters part is based on the fact the club will happen four times a year.)
