Nanu Nanu play their first ever Whelan’s headliner on Saturday September 29. The Dublin duo have been gaining quite a reputation for their unusual electro pop anthems and fabulous lightshow. Despite Nanu Nanu existing less than a year, they’ve had a meteoric rise. Invitations to play for the BBC in the North followed an RTE 2FM session. They played Electric Picnic and will be releasing their debut EP in association with RTE Radio’s Arena show in October. Their debut album Unit One is recorded and is at present being mixed by Rob Kirwin (PJ Harvey, Depeche Mode and 30 Seconds to Mars).
They are supported on the night by label mates Katie Kim and Percolator. Katie’s reputation as a fantastic songwriter and golden-voiced chanteuse proceeds her, while Percolator, another export from the excellent Waterford music scene, will be releasing their debut album on Flaming June before the end of the year.
