Joey Gavinreleasing debut single Run

What you may need to know…

01. Artsy, psychy pop is the new forte of Dublin-based Joey Gavin and his band. Eagle-eyed observers might recognise him as low-end wrecker for noise-poppers THUMPER.

02. Run is the first single from Gavin’s second E.P., a move away from his folkier solo leanings, and features backup from, among others, Alan Dooley of math-rockers Yonen.

03. Streaming above, accompanied by that rarest of beasts these days, a B-side. The Hunt fleshes out Gavin’s folk streak in low-key, full-band fashion. Available now digitally via Dublin-based indie-label cornerstone Little L Records.

04. Playing Electric Picnic this weekend, on Saturday at 5pm, on the Ranch stage at Trailer Park.

Verdict: Contrasting sides, one of concise pop movement, the other of more lush, introverted musings. An exciting preview of an upcoming EP that should help establish Gavin as one to watch.
