THE CHOIR INVISIBLE
The Choir Invisible are a four-piece pop band in Dublin. With shades of ’60s French pop, jangly indie melody, shoegaze noise and the occasional suit, they’ve spent the past year making a name for themselves on the Irish live scene, as well as playing in the UK. They sing about escape and fantasy, about ticking time and about fast drives by clueless drivers at unreasonable hours. Their EP & singles have been spotted in Tokyo record shops, and have received occasional accolades from strange French websites.
The first half of 2014 saw the band opening for Codes in Whelans, Trouble Pilgrims in The Workman’s Club, as well as playing esteemed showcases, YouBloom, Retro Revival, and New Natives. They are currently gearing up for the release of their new single “Changing My Spots” on July 12th, with a headline slot in Whelan’s Upstairs.
