Music Features

Escape Claws: An interview with Cate Le Bon

“There is an expectation of audience at the very genesis of making something. For me, getting away from that was really important.” We catch up with Cate Le Bon who, over the course of four albums has stretched to breaking point the assumed constraints of the singer-songwriter model.

Home Truths: Interview with Oh Boland

Hailing from Tuam, Oh Boland have been releasing mildly demented garage pop since 2013. We spoke to singer and guitarist Niall Murphy about the academic life and the particular ennui of the Irish countryside that fuels his music.

 

Duty Bound – Ought Interview

For Ought, the antidote to modern malaise lays collective reflection on the often terrifying universals that unite us all; struggle, death, the stark reality of individual insignificance.

Slaves to the Music: Tony Buck from The Necks

For over 25 years now, Australian band The Necks have been sidestepping conventions and defying classification with their distinctive form of improvised music. Ahead of their visit to Ireland, Totally Dublin caught up with Tony Buck, drummer with The Necks, to try to unravel some of the mystery behind their beguiling and delicate craft.

A Cosmic Drama: Hunter Hunt-Hendrix of Liturgy

Live reviews of Liturgy often describe the accuracy in which the band plays the album material — no mean feat considering the interwoven nature of the musical arrangements, coupled with unabating rhythms. We catch up with lead vocalist Hunter Hunt-Hendrix.

Still Making Sense: Hot Chip

Ahead of their headline performance at Metropolis Festival in the RDS this November, Totally Dublin caught a few quick words with Alexis Taylor, lead vocalist and keyboardist of Hot Chip, whose excellent sixth album Why Make Sense? was released this summer.

Music Interview: Girl Band

I think most bands who end up signing to someone like Rough Trade will be a bit ‘what the fuck?’ Dara Kiely and Alan Duggan of Dublin’s Girl Band talk to us.
