CRY MONSTER CRY
_ Main Venue _
To coincide with the release of their debut album “Rhythm of Dawn”, Dublin folk duo Cry Monster Cry have announced a date in Whelan’s of Wexford Street for Saturday 14th March.
Tickets for their Whelan’s show in Dublin are priced €12.50 including booking fee and are on sale from Friday 30th January at www.wavtickets.ie.
Their new material is a result of their taking time away from touring to hone their song writing craft. “Rhythm of Dawn” is an album of transition, both artistically and thematically. The cyclical theme of the record marks the journey from night to day. Birds feature as a running theme throughout, stitched like a seam into the fabric of the record. There is an apparent tension between beautiful melodic harmonies and heavier darker undertones present in the lyrics and sounds that make up the work.
The album was recorded at Studio 2, Malahide with established collaborator Keith Lawless (The Fallen EP) and was mixed by Abbey Road veteran engineer Guy Massey (The Beatles, Ed Sheeran, Manic Street Preachers). The brothers also took time to experiment with different sounds. Traditional folk instruments such as banjos, mandolins and acoustic guitars meet swirling subtle synthesizers, punchy electric guitars, hypnotic African percussion and chamber orchestras to create a feeling of a timeless journey through night and day.
– 50c per ticket service charge applies on phone, internet or creditcard bookings. Final ticket price may be higher from other outlets.
