Nocturnes – folk-tinged electronica with Sligo roots
What you may need to know…
01. Composer Pearse McGloughlin (pictured), late of indie bands Socialite, Thy Swan Army and Walkperson, now makes less ruckus with electronic project Nocturnes.
02. Under his own moniker, McGloughlin has released a triptych of long-players, most notably 2013’s Idiot Songs, a concept album that tackles and reinterpret Dostoevsky’s The Idiot.
04. Catch McGloughlin and collaborators this Sunday at Dublin’s Bello Bar, launching new single Dear Infant. Support from Ella Naseeb.
Thoughts: Simple pop songs, sans the saccharine, and set through a grimy, greyscale filter with fitting ambience.
