Patrick Kelleher – Dublin electronica
What you may need to know…
01. Progressing from synth-pop and new-wave inflections that earned his second album a Choice Prize nomination, Patrick Kelleher’s new material apparently veers into acid house and early techno for inspiration.
02. Over the years, Kelleher has trod the boards with acts like Future Islands, Ariel Pink’s Haunted Graffiti, A Flock of Seagulls and Dan Deacon, performing live with collaborator Brian Conniffe (Nurse With Wound).
03. Streaming above is the video for Miracle Candle, taken from the aforementioned Choice nominee, Golden Syrup.
04. Catch him this Thursday as part of Bodytonic’s new weekly series at the Bernard Shaw in Dublin, 8pm, free in.
Thoughts: A purveyor of quality Irish synth-explorations, Kelleher’s lateral moves into dingier territory ought not disappoint.
