The Workman’s Club presents – HALVES
Friday, 6 June with special guests Carriages
Tickets on-sale Friday, 11 April at 9am
We are incredibly excited to announce a very special show at ours! We’ve got Halves hitting our stage on Friday, 6th June. One of Ireland’s most intriguing acts, Halves is Brian Cash, Elis Czerniak & Tim Czerniak. The trio blend a vast range of instruments, acoustic and electronic, to create an evocative, cinematic live experience. Their five releases to date have met with universal critical success, as well as earning them ardent fans from Tokyo to Seattle. Their live show is truly captivating; a mix of synched visuals, strings, brass, and electronics, anchored by soaring guitars and dual drummers. And here’s a fun fact, pop-pickers: Halves supported PVT on the opening night of The Workman’s Club, so Halves were the FIRST band to play on our stage! We can’t wait to have them back!
In 2009 Halves made their debut TV performance, topping the viewers’ choice poll on RTE’s Other Voices series. The band played twice at the SXSW Music Festival in Austin Texas to great response, and have also played Eurosonic, Canadian Music Week and London Calling. Halves have supported the likes of British Sea Power, Mercury Rev, Low and PVT, and were nominated for the Choice Music Prize for their debut album.
They released their sophmore record on 5 July, 2013. Boa Howl was the follow-up to Halves’ 2010 Choice Prize-nominated debut album It Goes, It Goes (Forever & Ever), and saw the Irish trio return with a bolder, more experimental second offering. Boa Howl featured a mix of confident upbeat tracks side by side with slow experimental pieces, resulting in a cinematic, surreal journey over eleven songs. Guest vocals appear courtesy of Gemma Hayes, a fan of the band for some time. Canadian musician Elaine Kelly-Canning features on harp and added string performances come courtesy of local Swedish players. Boa Howl refers to a summit on a mountain in China dubbed ‘White Boa Howl’, which the band felt captured the surreal nature of the songs. Musically, the album was inspired by a wide range of influences – from The Flamingos and Joe Meek, toClouddead, to traditional Malian music and the 1950s orchestral arrangements of Gordon Jenkins.
Here’s some extra special news: the first 100 people through the door at the gig will get a FREEHALVES VINYL on the night. PLUS, to coincide with this exciting gig announcement, Halves will be releasing a NEW TRACK
