Harbouring Oceans will play the Brewery Corner on March 26th as part of their Irish tour, in support of their single Along The Levee. They will be joined by White-Line Fever and Míde Houlihan as support acts.
Harbouring Oceans have many wide-ranging influences outside of their rock foundations. Close-harmony, soulful vocals and deep grooves are all characteristics of their sound, and hip-hop and electronica are influences, too. They employ a quiet-loud dynamic to tremendous effect, going from almost ambient to thunderous in the space of a few bars. Galvanised by the independent ethos of the independent scene, Harbouring Oceans are determined to take their sound to as many people as possible.
White-Line Fever, however, are a folk rock/post-rock group, hailing from Cork City. Their debut E.P Anomie showcases their tendency towards experimentation and extravagant song structures. Anomie received critical acclaim including a 10/10 review in U&I Magazine.
Míde Houlihan comes from Clonakilty and is more in the singer-songwriter camp. She started gigging solo in 2011 and has been playing around Cork ever since, including support slots for FRED, Canadian folk singer Doug Paisley and a slot in the Sherkin Responsibilities Festival 2013. Mick Hanly gave her single You Know it’s Christmas Time, a great review saying: ‘‘I think we have a surfeit of syrup and goo already, but when you hear ‘Eastenders’ being rhymed with ‘preggars’ in a Christmas song setting well s***!… it’s time to tune in.’’
The doors open at 9:30p.m and entry is €5.
