Support from Joey Gavin
Joey Gavin is a Dublin based musician. "Run" is his sophomore release, following his 2015 EP "Circles".
This new single sees a departure from Gavin's Nick Drake-esque alt. folk vibes on "Circles", going into more art pop territories. "Run" is a chaotic, kaleidoscopic psych-pop jaunt.
2016 in particular saw Joey Gavin establish himself further, with appearances at Body & Soul and shows in Dublin staples such as Whelan's, Sin É and The Workmans. Joey Gavin is also member of noise pop project THUMPER.
Run/Rolf is available on 7" from Little L Records now from the link below
ABOUT :: THE SHAKER HYMN
The Shaker Hymn are a four-piece alternative rock band from Cork, Ireland. Having known each other since childhood, the quartet started making rudimentary teenage noises back in the midst of 2005.
The catalyst for what would become The Shaker Hymn was a two-month American excursion early in 2012. A remarkable road trip ensued, involving acoustic support slots to Chelsea Crowell, everywhere between New York and Austin, Texas. It was on this trek that brand new, future-embracing songs were crafted; songs that would shortly enter the repertoire of the fledgling Shaker Hymn on the debut album Rascal's Antique.
“…it’s hard to believe that this is a debut; there’s a huge amount of depth and maturity in the songs. Here’s an album to listen to again and again, and discover something new as you become acquainted.”— Dan Hegarty, 2FM
The band don’t fit easily into preconceived ideas of genre. Elements of indie pervade and some tracks tilt towards more alternative themes, but the overriding feel of the album 2016's Do You Think You're Clever?, is that of pop sensibility. Take Trophy Child or Sucking It Out, the deft hooks make the listener at once appreciate a serious band is at work.
“Super band with top drawer songs. Believe the hype”— Niall Carver, RTE
There is a sense of glamour to proceedings, fans of Supergrass will be enticed by the nonchalant way that Sherlock spits out the lyrics. But while The Shaker Hymn evoke some of the best characteristics of 90s guitar bands, this is an intently forward looking outfit whose lyrics reflect the deep romanticism of classic artists from the country they call home.
