Having treated us to numerous covers over the past while (In Your Eyes, Angel Baby) Patrick Kelleher finally returns with concrete news of a proper new album entitled Golden Syrup. This new creation is done and dusted and set for a June 18 release by Osaka on LP, CD and Download.
Anyone who knows me will probably have heard me harping on about Paddy’s debut You Look Cold LP at some point but ‘Miracle Candle’, the first track to emerge from the new album, signifies an intriguing shift in direction. Where You Look Cold was all eerie desolation and acoustic flourishes, ‘Miracle Candle’ is a souped-up electronic medley, complete with a tripped-out guitar solo at the end and a frenetic pace throughout.
The album launch is provisionally set for Saturday 18th June in the Grand Social (with support from Declan Q Kelly and Magic Pockets) though the Body & Soul clash may see it changed.
