The Divine Comedy – Norma and Norman
It sometimes seems that we take Neil Hannon for granted. For nearly 30 years he has been one of Ireland’s best songwriters and his new single is a case in point: a three-act love story that is warm, witty, wise and with a killer chorus. And he makes it seem so effortless.
The video is also brilliantly edited and directed.
Neil is touring his new album ‘Office Politics’ this autumn when his band play Dublin Bord Gais Energy Theatre on October 6; Belfast Ulster Hall on October 7; and Cork Opera House on October 8.
Nick says: How many pop songs namecheck the Battle of Hastings? Genius.
