Other Voices Dingle announce Paolo Nutini, Inhaler, The Big Moon, Loyle Carner and Just Mustard
Other Voices announces FIVE new inspiring and creative talents to headline St James’ Church in Dingle this December 2nd - 4th.
One of the breakthrough bands of the past decade, Dublin quartet INHALER have racked up over 150 million streams globally, and played Glastonbury, Tramlines and Lollapalooza Chicago, they rounded off their summer festivals by supporting Arctic Monkeys on their European tour. Recent singles ‘These Are The Days’ and ‘Love Will Get You There’ are the first tracks to emerge from Inhaler’s forthcoming second album ‘Cuts & Bruises’ coming out Feb 2023.
Crafting their own unique blend of noise, trip-hop and electronic music, Dundalk’s JUST MUSTARD have steadily built a reputation as one of Ireland’s most thrilling new bands both live and on record. Their debut album 'Wednesday' received critical acclaim followed by their second album ‘Heart Under’, described by NME as ‘thrillingly untraditional’ while Pitchfork dubbed the album as ‘immersive and bewildering’.
South Londoner LOYLE CARNER brings insight, honesty and poetic intensity to his confessional hip-hop music as showcased in his debut album 'Yesterday's Gone' earning him a Mercury Prize nomination. Carner’s highly anticipated record, ‘Not Waving, But Drowning’ in 2019 gave yet more evidence of his razor-sharp flow and his unique storytelling ability. He has taken his music to the world and back, scoring two albums that have cracked the top five of the Official Albums Chart, BRIT Award nominations and won an NME Award. Having performed at Other Voices in 2017, we welcome Loyle Carner back with open arms and can’t wait to hear new tracks from his recently released 2022 album ‘Hugo’.
A phenomenal name added to the Other Voices lineup, BRIT Award nominee and Ivor Novello winner PAOLO NUTINI. Having returned this year with a new album ‘Last Night In The Bittersweet’, a 70-minute epic that spans the distance from classic rock to post-punk to hypnotic Krautrock, his deepest, most varied, most accomplished, and ultimately most rewarding set so far. Two of his three albums to date, ‘Sunny Side Up’ and ‘Caustic Love’, have hit #1 on the UK album charts as he amassed 8 million global album sales and 1.5 billion global streams.
Another huge Other Voices debut comes from Mercury-nominated, alt-pop four-piece THE BIG MOON. Their third studio album ‘Here Is Everything’ written during lockdown captures an emotional phase for the band. Together since 2014, the powerful bond between the indie-rock band is clear as they showcase pop-tinged belters filled with flawless harmonies. This performance is set to be one joyous, cathartic and celebratory intimate live experience.
These incredible artists join the already stellar St James’ Church lineup including; post-punk noise-rock from Gilla Band, the formidable vocalist Gemma Dunleavy, multi-instrumentalist folk singer John Francis Flynn and indie-pop from Sorcha Richardson.
Beyond St. James’ Church, Other Voices have announced the full schedule of events for Cogar, their Irish languag
e strand of the festival which celebrates the arts and our native tongue. Jim Carroll’s Banter series happening in Foxy John’s pub has some exciting new additions including Ruadhán Mac Cormaic, Irish Times Editor with music across the weekend from Caoi De Barra, Niamh Regan, Sorcha Richardson & more across the weekend.
Another emerging voice has been added to the IMRO Other Room - Galway artist Celaviedmai (aka Mai) is turning heads in Irish music for her penmanship and live shows. Known for her hard-hitting lyrics and explosive live performances, Mai has been raising the bar when it comes to entertaining a crowd. According to Vice.com "few MCs in Ireland are as bold."
Other Voices’ ideas and discussion strand Ireland’s Edge have also announced an exciting new addition to their programme, the Pulitzer-nominated journalist Carole Cadwalladr. Having recently defended herself in the UK High Court from a claim of libel made against her by Aaron Banks, Carole returns to Ireland’s Edge to discuss democracy, data rights and disinformation, and her increasingly active role in highlighting the threats to public interest journalism and journalists across the world. Final Ireland’s Edge tickets and full programme are available here.
