The Alabama native is Ireland-bound!
Alabama singer-songwriter A.A. Bondy will perform in Dublin at The Workman’s Club on Saturday, 9 November. Known for his folk music, A.A. Bondy has taken a more synth-based approach with his latest album, Enderness.
It’s been eight years since Bondy last released a record, and his distaste for the present day has evidently intensified. But rather than avoid popular sounds, on Enderness, Bondy gathers and subverts modern tools to construct his indictment of the modern world. With an arsenal of synthesizers, drum machine, and an electric guitar, he builds a dystopian story of living death stoked by internet anti-reality, big pharma conspiracy, and environmental apocalypse. So, basically 2019?
The highlight of the album, ‘Images of Love’ leans heavily into the thematic sound of sleepless nights and existential dread evident throughout the album. “Stranger if you come / Know that much is broken / I forget the way / Surrender is spoken,” he sings with bass pulses driving the caustic groove.
Tickets cost €16.00 inclusive of booking fee and will be available on Friday, 30 August at 10AM here.
