I really like these new tracks from The Last Sound – they’re wonderfully dreamy and gothic, and sound like they’re on a dusty 7″ from the late ’80s that you found in your grumpy Bauhaus-obsessed older sibling’s bedroom.
Dubliner Barry Murphy is the guy behind The Last Sound, and his new 7″ release, ‘Only the Lonely Know the Glow is Failing’/’Turbochant’, is released on the excellent Osaka record label.
Barry has a long and varied musical career which includes performing with ex-Can vocalist Damo Suzuki’s tour band, and on his 2009 live album One More Universe, as well as being a member of Whirling Hall Of Knives.
If you’d like to catch The Last Sound live, head to The Joinery in Stoneybatter, Dublin on Saturday 21 May at 8pm, where the official launch for this new release will take place.
Support comes from the fantastic Legion of Two and Thread Pulls. Tickets are €10 and it’s BYOB.
