Land Lovers‘ new album Confidants will be released on September 30th via Popical Island, with a launch gig taking place in Crawdaddy that very night.
Squarehead & Last Days Of 1984 will also be playing the launch. Rumour has it there’ll be a stream of Confidants on nialler9.com & a new video premiered on Harmless Noise “soon”.
They are, therefore, dead to me.
Land Lovers are a band from Dublin in Ireland, who play in a melodic, wordy style that might not be actual pop music but is something of the sort.
Late in 2009, Land Lovers helped to form the Popical Island collective with fellow Dublin-based bands Groom and Yeh Deadlies, formalising a co-operative relationship that had built up over time.
Formed in 2008 as a the solo project of Pádraig Cooney, who self-released the album Romance Romance, the full line-up now includes Cooney, Ciarán Canavan, Brian Lynch, Cormac Hughes and Shane Murphy. A new album will be released in the autumn of 2011.
The band has released the Immovable Feet EP; contributed songs to the much-loved Popical Island #1 and Popical Island #2 compilations; played wherever the need is greatest, including appearances at Electric Picnic and Forbidden Fruit; and released a limited-edition 10-song Yuletide Miscellany. Cooney wrote and sang the Popical Island Showband’s Christmas single, The High Line, while other band members formed part of the 20-piece wall of sound.
