The G-Man & Lisa Lemur present... A Low Trees promotion

Dott // French For Rabbits

Triskel Arts Centre TDC
Triskel Arts Centre, Tobin Street, Cork
Friday 8th November
9.30pm
€7


An unmissable double-header featuring Galwegian garage-popsters Dott and New Zealand dream-folk duo French For Rabbits. This one's set to be particularly special as the the Galway group officially launch début album Swoon and the latter will be enjoying their very first professional visit to Ireland.

******************** ******************** ******************** ******************** ******
Dott
Dott are from Galway, Ireland and play shiny, harmony-driven garage pop. The band is led by songwriter Anna McCarthy (vocals/guitar) with Laura Finnegan (bass/vocals), Miriam Donohue (guitar/vocals) and Tony Higgins (drums). Their debut EP Button was released in 2012 on the Popical Island Collective and on 7" vinyl with Graveface Records USA.

Formed only in January 2012, Dott have been busy, regularly featuring on national television (RTÉ's The Late Late Show, Ceol ar an Imeall TG4), national and international radio (2FM Dan Hegarty Sessions, Arena RTÉ Radio 1, BBC) and at all the major festivals (including Electric Picnic, Hard Working Class Heroes, Camden Crawl, Indiependence). Taking their "sunny, garage rock" across the Atlantic, American indie label Graceface Records fell in love with the quartet, releasing Button on 7" vinyl Stateside following Anna and co.'s U.S. début at New York’s favourite independent music venue the Cake Shop. Songs from Button can be heard on BBC Radio, Today FM, 2FM, RTE RADIO 1, RnaG, 98FM and Phantom Radio. Their eagerly awaited début album Swoon will be released on November 5th 2013 on Graveface Records U.S.

"Sunny garage rock with dash, shizzle and superfly choruses from Galway-based underground supergroup"
Jim Carroll, (The Irish Times)

"Dott have some infectious tunes on their Button EP... "Leave Tonight" and "Let's Do It" are especially good."
Brooklyn Vegan

"full of shiny melodies and luminous female vocals, as if Dum Dum Girls went out of their dark basement to get fresh air."

French For Rabbits
French for Rabbits are a dream folk duo from Wellington, New Zealand. They released debut EP Claimed by the Sea in March through the Wellington music collective ‘Home Alone Music’. Strong alternative radio airplay of the album and a growing fan base has resulted in a Best Folk Album Tui nomination for the duo. Vocalist Brooke Singer and jazz guitarist John Fitzgerald use nautical-themed language to examine stories of longing and regret in a stunning début set.

Free Download: 'Goat' - http://frenchforrabbits.bandcamp.com

"Brooke has this beguiling voice that is sure to add French For Rabbits to the list of New Zealand's exports before long, overwhelmingly beautiful."
Just Music I Like

"Claimed By The Sea is the duo’s debut EP, a gorgeous collection of woozy vocals and reverberating instrumentation"

Cheers MJ! I masterfully provided all the text. The other easy stuff was added by Pretty Handsome Studio

They're just the best to be honest. If looking to get logos, posters designed, t-shirts printed, screen-prints etc. they are just brilliant.
