€15 tickets for the debut Dublin gig go on sale this Thursday, April 29th at 10AM.
To celebrate the release of her 2020 EP Storm In Summer, indie-folk sensation Skullcrusher is set to visit Europe for the first time this autumn.
The artist will make her debut in Dublin’s one and only Workman’s Club on 14th September 2021, featuring support from Runnner.
Musical from childhood, LA-based songwriter Helen Ballentine, known by her stage name Skullcrusher, debuted just last year after signing with Secretly Canadian. Yet, she is already receiving an international acknowledgement with music that reveals the duality of her seemingly angelic persona.
In her songs, she explores different routes of self-discovery and tries to determine which circumstances are essential for it. The singer believes that we are being the most honest when we stop paying attention to ourselves.
Her stunning EP Storm in Summer invites listeners into Ballentine’s personal space full of mental turbulence and anxiety, where she, nevertheless, finds peace in acceptance of the uncertainly.
"I put so much emphasis on this private self, and all of these things that I love that are my own, and as soon as I let someone else into that, it’s really hard," she confesses.
"But I’m also someone who wants to let someone else into that. It’s sort of this back-and-forth about wanting to connect to other people but also being a little bit afraid of that."
Tickets to Skullcrusher’s first Irish show Ticketmaster.ie and Tickets.ie will go on sale tomorrow, April 29th.
