delush and October Fires have teamed up to put on a show in one of Dublin’s most established venue’s for original music. This is set to be an amazing night of original live music!
After 3 years of facilitating other creators as a producer, writer or collaborator, Enda Gallery created delush to share his own deepest and truest experiences and realisations. The Irish, berlin-based artist creates to illuminate self-knowledge, inspire wonder, and help create a future he would love to live in.
He describes this future as one where: We all live our purpose joyfully. We won’t fear our own power or uniqueness. We will all feel free to express ourselves without fear. We will understand and over-stand the mind as a beautiful part of themselves but not suffer it needlessly. We are all aware of our oneness with all life and all of our discriminatory problems are in the past. We will create from the soul and not in a cycle of endless repetition. We can all speak deeply and truthfully without fear. We are loved, and we are loving.
It’s not all deep and serious though: “I also just make music for the sheer fucking joy of it.” – delush”
“October Fires have been described as ‘Radiohead meets Tori Amos.’ Yet, even that doesn’t do justice to the four-piece Kildare band” (Hot Press Magazine)
October Fires are a four-piece group consisting of Carol Somers on piano, vocals and percussion, Lisa Baker on piano, vocals and percussion, Eoghan O’Neill on bass and Eric Somers on guitar. Carol and Lisa met in 2002 studying music in Maynooth University. They’ve been inseparable ever since after finding an innate ability to harmonise together, even being able to predict what the other is about to do! This bond has become the central feature of the band.
The band’s style is difficult to pin down but they describe their music as haunting, harmonic, dark pop. They take influences from choral music, classical, pop, soul, funk, folk, rock and fuse them together to create their unique sound.
The band’s name was inspired by the smoky scent in the air walking home from practice one autumn night. October has a unique vibe, with its perfect blend of beauty and eeriness, a trademark of the band’s sound and their music is continually inspired by this balance.
