SESSION MOTTS - Chip Shop Fights

Info: This coming Thursday 30th of November, in Sin É two of Dublin's most individual bands will take to the stage together, both currently creating a cutting edge sound in their own right. 80's inspired post-punk act SESSION MOTTS and much lauded hard-punk trio Alien She will be offering a must see line-up and admission on the night is free.

SESSION MOTTS' trademark 80s-Modern sound - a hybrid of Post-Punk, Northern Soul, Disco and Burt Bacharach - was first heard on their debut single 'Chip Shop Fights' (above video) which was released on January 22nd 2017.

Nialler9, Ireland's most influential music blogger, quickly named SESSION MOTTS 'New Artist of the Week' in The Irish Times and the group soon picked up similar accolades from and The song also gained regular airplay on RTE1, Newstalk, 98FM, Radio Nova, 8Radio and Dublin City FM. 

Following their first two live shows at the beginning of the summer Goldenplec stated that; "...even at this early phase, two gigs into their live career, Session Motts deserve to be gracing bigger and better stages." The MOTTS are currently recording their fourth studio single following the success of most recent release 'Back In The Day' as well as gearing up for a support slot for HamsandwicH on Whelans mainstage next month.

Alien She - Solitary

Alien She have just released their superb debut album Feeler on our ears via label Art For Blind Records with the launch night taking place yesterday upstairs at Stage 19. The band have caused a big stir in the lead up to the LP release (which will very thankfully be available on limited edition vinyl), earning glowing plaudits along the way from the likes of The Last Mixed Tape and The Thin Air. In addition they played their biggest show to date on Thursday supporting Russian punk anarchists Pussy Riot alongside Pillow Queens at The Button Factory.

The group comprises of artists and activists Katie O’Neill on guitar and vocals, Aoife Mairéad Nic Dhonncha on bass and vocals and Darragh McCabe on drums. Founding members Katie and Aoife came together at a feminist meeting, and like true practitioners of punk, with the help of final addition Darragh, their political voice has deepened and developed since the band’s formation.

The band’s sound is defined by their combined interest in punk, poetry and expressive music, and they describe how the inspiration for their songs comes from written prose and personal experience. The end result is a mixture of raw and relentless energy which manifests itself in a number of different manners; sometimes in the form of agitated punk, other times their sound is reminiscent of 80’s shoegaze, but their constant progression and experimentation prevent the group from reproducing same-sounding tracks, keeping their sound fresh.
