PINHOLE Pinhole are a quirky Irish-based 4 piece, brandishing the “alternative” flag but deliberately skating over genre boundaries with the result that they stand alone in their unique sound. Having tried and tested new material in packed venues in Dublin and Cork. (Whelans, The Bello Bar, Coughlans of Cork) they have just recorded their debut album. Their new single 6 Kenley Avenue is being played on 2FM, Today FM, BBC Five and Newstalk. They have appeared on the infamous Other Voices TV series. Their tangental approach to song writing has been likened to being “in a dark fairytale”. It is refreshingly new and addressing topical issues. From delicate melodies to raw mayhem, they take you on a roller coaster journey of the senses. They have been likened to a reinvented Kate Bush, PJ Harvey, Bat for Lashes and Portishead to name a few… — — — — —

ELAINE MALONE Elaine Malone is an Irish psychedelic-folk songwriter. Hailing from Limerick, she currently resides in Cork, where she has carved a name for herself as an idiosyncratic songwriter. Known for her haunting voice and poetic lyricism combined with grunge roots and psychedelic leanings. Her debut single ‘You’ was premiered on Nialler9 in February and received international airplay. Her recent appearances include Quarter Block Party, It Takes A Village and support slots for O Emperor, David Keenan and Marlene Enright. Her debut EP Land was recorded with fellow artist Sam Clague in a small home studio over the course of a year. Described by Dan Hegarty of 2FM as “quite something – what exactly? Striking, stunning and heartfelt are three words that go some way to encapsulating it.”
