Cat Dowling has announced some gigs she’ll be playing around the release of her debut LP The Believer, out on May 3rd.
The Believer, a stripped-down affair of funeral pop, is a collection of beautifully crafted and treasured songs, which will envelop your head without you even noticing. It is an eclectic offering of low-key beats coloured with layers of sonic delights and a voice, both hushed and passionate, that will punch you in the gut.
Says Cat herself:
The official album launch of The Believer is happening in McCarthys Bar in Dingle (hurrah) on Thursday May 2 as part of Feile na Bealtaine. My album “The Believer” is dedicated to my very special friend Michael (there should be a fada on the “a”) Fanning whose belief and constant encouragement to me on this artistic journey will stay with me forever. It is going to be an incredibly special night. Thank you sooo much to Feile na Bealtaine for having me back. If you can’t make Dingle, the Dublin launch will be happening on Saturday May 11th in the Grand Social. Please help me spread the word. I’m releasing this independently in Ireland so I really need your help and love to help get this album out into the world. Would love you to be part of it too. xx
