Dreaming of Jupiter - Light of My Life
Info: This coming Thursday, 20th of October, sees Dublin trio Dreaming of Jupiter launch their debut single, 'Light Of My Life', in Whelan's, with support from fellow Dubs, Almost Ghosts (video below). In addition there will be an art exhibition comprised of the works of ten different artists, based on the single itself, and providing a visual edge to the night.
With an album release not too far away, the band have been gigging tirelessly since 2016 began, making a name for themselves, and slowly building up momentum as the single launch night approaches at last. My own thoughts on the single are summarised here from last month's review; 'Light Of My Life' harks back to the more thoughtful songs that scattered the US and UK charts in the 80's and early 90's, with lead singer Zoë Gough's vocals unusually sounding like a mix of Pat Benatar, Annie Lennox and Cyndi Lauper, all sliced up in thirds and put back together again, but without sounding like any of them individually. Something I have become more and more aware of lately is how Irish acts are reshaping how alternative and electronic pop music sounds, and they're doing it very well...'
I caught them again just the other night as part of the monthly Gigonometry sessions at The Workman's Club and their set was very well received by an almost full house, where they also did an excellent cover of Everything But The Girl's 90's classic 'Missing'.
