Amongst the first glut of bands ever to play with Homebeat The Dirty 9s stood out for many reasons.
Immediate hooks, soaring choruses and delicate musicianship were their hallmark sound, but what made them special was the heart they played it all with and we were lucky to have them perform for us a number of times.
But sometimes, in art as in life, the light dims a little and you need to glimpse at each other through a new perspective.. life moves on, people move on, music moves on and bands move on…
Grasping the urge to reinvent, The 9’s have gladly stayed together as musicians but they have been brave enough to embrace change and re form their musical identity as Wild Promises.
So, with spring in the air and all-pervasive never-ending change all around us we are delighted to help host their official rebirth ‘At First Light’ in Whelanslive (upstairs).
It will be a night of song, film, continuation and rebirth.
Performing on the night:
Wild Promises are four musicians from Dublin. Influenced by late 80’s synth pop and the new wave of indie pop on both sides of the Atlantic.
Heartstrong, acoustic-based duo from County Derry, Northern Ireland. The perfect accompaniment to falling in or out of love.
Dublin based alt-folk foursome with gloriously nuanced tales of their surrounds smothered with aching harmonies and strong lyrics.
Everything looks different At First Light..
