Info: Cfit is the performance name of Dublin songwriter Noël Duplaa who is due to release his new single, 'Dust Silhouettes' on the 27th of July, in the run up to the release Cfit & co. will be bringing out 5 videos from a small acoustic gig that was performed with friends at a house during a trip to Wexford. The first video is 'Coke & Spiriters' (above), which was filmed and recorded with the help of Jamie Tanner and Penny Merelle-Grey, the track originally appeared on Cfit's 2013 E.P., Morning Bruise. Additional videos will be released on Thursday 9th, Monday 13th, Thursday 16th and Monday 20th of July.

A lovely play on words, the video for 'Coke & Spiriters' was a nice introduction to his music for me, sparking a curiosity for his earlier work which began with debut album Triage at the beginning of 2011, but also anticipating the forthcoming videos and single. Lyrically thoughtful and ponderous, the music reminded me very much of The Frames more low-key releases such as For the Birds, possibly as a result of the acoustic nature of the performance and the string arrangements which are pretty pretty! Enjoy 'Coke & Spiriters', until Thursday....

In addition to this, the tracks from the 5 videos will then be available as a free EP with the purchase of 'Dust Silhouettes', which is available for preorder here:
