Clara Tracey, Gurriers and Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra will perform at Dublin's Annesley House venue in Ballybough on Saturday, March 19th.
Gurriers, Clara Tracey and Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra have announced a night of live music at The Annesley House in Dublin on Saturday, March 18th - in collaboration with Anon Records.
Formed just before the pandemic, Gurriers can finally prove their prowess onstage. The newest addition to Dublin's roster of post-punk, alternative acts, the band is composed of five roommates, best friends and coworkers. Their sound is punchy and raw, with singles 'Top of the Bill' and 'Approachable' and 'Boy' coursing with energy.
Though originally from Enniskillen, Co Fermanagh, Clara Tracey fuses together her life experiences to create music unconstrained by genre. Pulling inspiration from French legends the likes of Edith Piaf, Tracy's mix of trip-hop and jazz weaves together social and political commentary with complex, interesting instrumentation.
Her song 'Harry Clarke' off debut Black Forest was featured on Hot Press's New Irish Songs to Hear This Week, and serves as an open letter to 'Dearest Harry, Mr Clarke.' “I would visit the Eve all the time when l was living around the corner from the Hugh Lane in Phibsboro. The little room where she hangs is a quiet meditative space almost like visiting a church, only in there you find yourself face to face with a darkly romantic/erotic fairytale," the singer said of the track.
Influenced by the The Cranberries, Cocteau Twins and Lush, Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra brings 90s grunge out from underground and into the limelight. Loosely based in Dublin, the trio's breakout singles ‘I Didn’t Love You When I Said I Did and I Don't Now’ and ‘Empty Envelope’ have received radio support across Ireland and the UK ahead of the release of their debut later this year.
On the former, Hot Press said: "Influenced by indie rock heroines such as Mitski, Amanda Palmer and Angel Olsen, Deegan’s quick-witted and intimate songwriting strikes a balance between irony and sincerity."
Gurriers, Clara Tracey and Pixie Cut Rhythm Orchestra will play at the Annesley House on Saturday, March 19th. Tickets for the show range from €6 to €10, and can be purchased here.
