With support from Jennifer Evans
Sebright Arms, December 13th
Delorentos, the critically acclaimed Irish four-piece, who have supported artists as diverse as Bruce Springsteen, Two Door Cinema Club and Sinead O’Connor – are set to play London on December 13th. Following the release of ‘Night Becomes Light’ this year, the band will play at The Sebright Arms with noir-folk upcomer Jennifer Evans.
Renowned for their excellent live shows (both electric and acoustic) and for occasional versions of songs in Gaelic, Delorentos are an established name in their home country and around the world. Their previous album, ‘Little Sparks’, won the prestigious Choice Music Prize Irish Album of the Year award. The sheer warmth of the lyrics and the harmonic complexity evoke ‘Suburbs’ era Arcade Fire and fans of The Killers’ first album will also find solace in the candid approach to songwriting on display here.
Ever on the lookout for new, innovative ways to engage their followers, they have in recent times done a series of pop-up shops in disused spaces, written their own magazine and are set to publish their own book of “tips” based on their experiences in the music industry. That creativity is mirrored in their writing and recording process too, mixing new styles, apps and modern samples with vintage gear and analogue pedals.
This show offers UK audiences a rare chance to see the band in all their live glory, at one of London’s premiere live music venues at the end of what has been a big year, with bigger things to come.
