The third LP from Dinah Brand is out today, with an album launch gig set for June 7th
You can order the album on vinyl via the Dinah Brand Bandcamp page, or in person at the album launch next week – more details on that down below.
Dinah Brand return with their third album Thank You Driver on May 31st, available on vinyl LP and digital.
Long term resident in the Dublin Heritage City Experience, Dinah Brand songs go like this: personal intimacies and universal anxieties hidden in obscure, confusing word bunches; combined with warm and erratic electric guitar tones; and all— usually, but not exclusively—shifting at mid-pace drum time.
Way back in 2002, they released Pale Monkey Blues, a classic piece of Dublin noir. In 2010 or so, it was second album I Can Walk Through—another sad and lovely suite.
Their latest album (also a record) is Thank You Driver. This one, perversely, is as positive and angry as a natural melancholic can be—as sweet as it is dyspeptic. Never belonging but always available, three albums deep, Dinah Brand songs are your friend if you want it—you need never feel lonesome again.
The launch gig is on Friday June 7th at 8pm, Upstairs in Whelan’s with Aoife Nessa Frances. Tickets are €10 and you’ll be able to pick up vinyl copies of Thank You Driver at the gig.
