Dinah Brand - Rotunda BoyDigital
Release date: 23 November 2018
1. Rotunda Boy
2. Old Track
Dinah Brand return with a new single "Rotunda Boy" / "Old Track", their first release since 2010's opus I Can Walk Through.
Long term resident in the Dublin Heritage City Experience, Dinah Brand songs go like this: personal intimacies and universal anxieties hidden in obscure, confusing word bunches; combined with warm and erratic electric guitar tones and all, usually but not exclusively, shifting at mid pace drum time.
Way back in 2002, Dinah Brand released Pale Monkey Blues, a classic piece of Dublin noir. In 2010 or so it was second album I Can Walk Through – another sad and lovely suite.
A new album will appear soon - this time, it's (perversely) as positive and angry as a natural melancholic can be.
The protagonists are: D Lacey – Precision bass / D Phillips – Telecaster / G Ward – Drums / S Ryan – Telecaster, Les Paul, Danelectro 12 string. Supplemental: J Hegarty - Keyboards
