JAMES VINCENT MCMORROW – New single and big gigs announced for October
What you may need to know…
01. Dubliner James Vincent McMorrow is a world-travelled troubadour and songwriter, possibly in scarce need of an introductory piece at this stage.
02. New album We Move is up for pre-order now, following on from much-fancied sophomore LP Post-Tropical, which led McMorrow around the world and to sold-out shows in Sydney Opera House, Choice Music Prize nominations, and getting sampled by hip-hop oligarch Drake.
03. Streaming above is the video for first single Rising Water, directed by Freenjoy and according to McMorrow, documents “the things we tell ourselves to move through loss”.
04. Big gigs announced to launch the record include Galway’s Black Box on August 5th, and Dublin’s National Stadium on August 7th.
VERDICT: Wonderfully barebones, cathartic synthiness that bodes well for the upcoming LP.
