The ever-popular New Music Night comes to the Left Bank with another mouth-watering line-up of emerging talent, some of it a little bonkers. Multi-instrumentalist Abigail Smith “sounds like Kate Bush and Björk had a love-child with Schubert and the Cocteau Twins” (The Sunday Tribune), while Trumpets of Jericho might also be “a bit touched” (We Are Noise). Mayo five-piece The manhattan Syndrome have been creating quite a stir of late with their dynamic live shows, while Ana gog create mini epics built on a complex palate of sounds, and Kilkenny’s Peter Lawlor (aka Replete) makes laidback grooves filled with swirling melodies and pulsating bass lines.
