Daughter - Shallows (Live @ Air Studios)

Today Daughter have unveiled the first of five very special performances recorded in London’s iconic Air Studios with composer Joe Duddell and a 10-piece classical ensemble. Shallows is the first video to be taken from the session. The full five-track session will be released as a digital EP on April 15th and as a limited-edition 12” on May 26th.

Rescheduled

I was supposed to go see St. Vincent tomorrow, but the show has been rescheduled for September 26th.  Oh Annie, I can’t wait that long…

Dum Dum Girls’ third full-length album, Too True, represents a new chapter in the musical life of frontwoman Dee Dee (who used to go by Dee Dee Penny, but now prefers no surname). After the tragic death of her mother, which informed 2011’s Only In Dreams, Dee Dee slowly started to exorcise her pain and hurt. The band’s subsequent End of Daze EP found her starting to turn the corner, and Too True finds her in a new space, both emotionally and, to some degree, musically as well. With Too True, Dee Dee further explores the atmospheric, ethereal textures that often filled End of Daze, and in this way the album is something of an antithesis to the punky girl-group bliss of the band’s earlier work. Dee Dee spoke to Under the Radar about the genesis of Too True and the process of moving on.

“Sometimes a voice just grabs you. A sound so compelling that when the song ends you are utterly distraught and when the next one starts you are completely elated. This is what was running through my head when I saw Aoife O’Donovan for the first time fronting Crooked Still.”
- Brian Carroll
