Friday 7th September 2018
The Roundy, Castle Street, Cork
Inni-K is a singer, multi-instrumentalist & songwriter from Co. Kildare, based in Dublin. Her mesmerizing vocals set off with tight musicianship and captivating stage presence creates a musical experience, rich with spine-tingling tenderness.
Now a well-established presence in Irish music, Inni-K (Eithne Ní Chatháin) has received consistent praise for her distinct, fresh style of contemporary-folk since the release of her acclaimed debut album The King has Two Horse’s Ears’ in 2015.
In Oct / Nov 2017, Inni-K spent 6 weeks on residency at Centre Culturel Irlandais, Paris working on new music, including the completion of her new single ‘Edges’. The song was partly recorded in Paris and partly in Dublin.
This brand new single from Inni-K, ‘Edges’ heralds a confident new departure for the singer, offering an exciting taste of what’s to come later in the year in the shape of her next album. A maturation of Inni-K’s vocal and songwriting abilities are apparent; a more daring, vocally rich yet spacious aesthetic – her folk background always recognizable but clearly an artist not afraid to explore into new musical territories.
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 second single 'No Blood' released in March was described as "musically recalling some of Tim Buckley’s airy jazz inclinations, and the gently percussive Weltschmerz of Nick Drake, Elaine Malone‘s new single cranks tension between folk music as a vehicle for aural pleasure and folk music as a vessel for crushingly human storytelling." - The Thin Air. Her debut EP Land due out in August.
