Dark Tropics will play the new venue at The Workman's Club in February.
After releasing their debut album Ink today, Dark Tropics have announced a headline show at The Workman's Cellar for next year.
The indie-pop group behind songs such as 'Moroccan Sun' and 'Keep Searching' will play the new venue on February 22.
Dark Tropics had released three singles before the album, will all of these tunes making the cut on the final LP.
The band was formed when multi-instrumentalist Gerard Sands linked up with vocalist Rio McGuinness-McCay, with the duo citing influences as varied as Radiohead, Aretha Franklin and John Cooper Clarke.
In a review of their new record, Hot Press' Lee Campbell widely praised band members Rio McGuinness-McCay and Gerard Sands' new music.
"It is atmospheric, moody and complex with a maturity that goes beyond the realms of a debut release," he wrote.
"It tells cinematic tales about the beginnings and ends of intense relationships, yet not too heavy or introspective to weigh everything down at the music’s expense."
He particularly praised 'Keep Searching', calling it the "standout song on the album."
"It is hopeful, optimistic folk-pop, embellished by some wonderful strings from Niamh McGowan on violin and Laura McFadden on cello."
Tickets for Dark Tropics at The Workman's Cellar are available here.
