Irish alternative folk duo Cry Monster Cry and guests return to Whelan’s for an intimate headline show on Saturday 1st December.

Change is inevitable. It’s the very essence of music. Times, tempos, rhythms, energies, moods, feelings. Music can present the exciting, the profound, the known and the new through these changes. Following on from the success of their debut album, “Rhythm of Dawn”, released to critical acclaim in 2015, Cry Monster Cry return with a sound that has changed.

The music still contains the tight fraternal harmonies, evocative lyrics and dynamic instrumentation that brothers Richie and Jamie Martin have become well known for, but a new presence is also acutely apparent. This time around, the band has harnessed the visceral, taking a direct and measured approach to song writing.

“Rich harmonies…exceedingly likeable” – The Sunday Times

“Music that manages to weave its way into your emotions” – The Irish Daily Mail

“Insular, thoughtful and poetic…totally addictive and alluring” – Pure M Magazine
