‘Slow Place Like Home’ is the brainchild of producer/musician Keith Mannion.
Straight from the forests of Donegal, in the North-West of Ireland, he has already released a series of EPs and his debut album ‘Romola’.
2016 saw him release the double A-sided singles ‘Tiger Lilly’ & ‘Friday’ on special edition limited 10″ vinyl.
Having appeared at all major Irish festivals, he has also played with such acts as, Dan Deacon, Squarepusher, Perfume Genius, Day Wave, Ezra Furman, Moodoïd, Prince Rama, Glass Animals and Pantha Du Prince.
Mannion’s sophomore album is due for release in late 2017 on Galway’s Strange Brew Rekkids, along with an extensive tour.
First single “When I See You… Ice Cream!” was released on June 19th 2017.
The Irish Times Tony Clayton-Lea called it “Song of the week (if not the Summer!)”
Flat Out are an Irish four piece who have developed their own unique Pop/Folk sound with a contemporary twist. Originating from Mayo and sharing an eclectic range of musical influences Bríd, Ciara, Harry and Mark are all vocalists and multi-instrumentalists.
‘Turn Out The Light’ has a very powerful meaning throughout the lyrics and was the official song approved by Pieta House to coincide with the ‘On Your Bike to Save a Life’ initiative, a fundraising cycle along the Wild Atlantic Way. Ciara from the band explains the inspiration behind the song – “The opening verse of Turn Out the Light immediately delves into a conversation I had with our friend about who we are and how much we have changed. The realisation of how unrecognisable they had become to themselves. Struggling with mental health alone is undoubtedly a scary process. I was taken aback to see someone I had perceived to be one of the strongest people close to me, crumble internally. The message we want to get across to everyone who struggles with their mental health is knowing that they can open up and that there is help out there” – ‘You held my hand, did not let go, you took me back to a place that I call home…there’s no need to turn out the light’
In 2015 Flat Out released their debut EP ‘Half Empty, Half Full‘, which featured four original songs and received fantastic radio airplay both in Ireland and abroad. March 2017 saw the release of their single “Dreamland”, which featured as Joe.ie’s ‘Song of the Day’ and reached #2 on the iTunes World Songs Chart in Ireland. Also armed with an impressive repertoire of covers, the band like to perform their take on anything from Nirvana to Nancy Sinatra and Elbow to Ed Sheeran.
This month the band won the Ballyshannon Folk Festival Showcase and with their brand new single ‘Turn Out the Light’, co-produced and recorded with Martin Quinn in Jam Studios and set for release 18 August, this year promises to be a busy year for Flat Out.
