Dublin-based Slow Skies release an debut EP "Silhouettes" on June 16th with a very special launch gig in The Back Loft, Dublin with live visuals from April Keane.
Slow Skies is the musical project of Karen Sheridan; who following the release of her debut EP with “much buzzed about trio” Kasette at the end of 2010 moved to London to concentrate on her song writing and music. A chance encounter with producer and multi-instrumentalist Conal Herron led the duo to perform loads of gigs throughout London including a lauded support slot with electronic music duo LAMB at Somerset House in July 2011.
The pair have since returned to Ireland and recorded Slow Skies’ debut EP "Silhouettes" together in the winter of 2011/12 in an array of sitting rooms in Dublin, Donegal and Wexford. A special blend of folk melodies with strings, harmonium, kitchen cabinet percussion and soft guitars; Slow Skies weighs somewhere between folk and pop music. With a collective-style approach Karen plans to play her gigs with different friends in different cities over the summer and winter months of 2012.
"Silhouettes" will be released under Sleeping Giants Records an independent label established by Karen, Conal and a group of friends. SlowSkies play Body and Soul Festival in June, Oh My Garden event in Brussels on June 29th and 10 Days in Dublin festival in July with many more dates in Dublin, London and Brussels soon to be announced over the coming weeks.
The track Walk Me Home (attached) will be available for download from Friday 18th May on Slow Skies’ Bandcamp and Soundcloud pages.
