Harbouring Oceans are a new 5 piece alt-pop band from Kilkenny. Their members (Dan Pearson, brothers Geoff & Benedict Warner-Clayton, Ken Farrell & Thomas Donoghue) are no strangers to the Irish music scene, having cut their teeth in various bands including The Cold Draw and Chemical Addiction.
Harbouring Oceans first single, ‘ENSO’ is a distinct departure from these roots. It’s an uplifting, harmony driven journey that squeezes an awful lot into it’s 4 minute timeline.
You get the sense that this is a band ready to deliver the goods right out of the gate. The arrangement of the various instruments blend effortlessly into a beautiful soundscape.
The band have almost completed their first Irish tour which was wide ranging and ambitious, 9 shows spread over 6 counties. Their final show is this Thursday in Dublin’s Button Factory, with support from the incredible Vernon Jane, We Were Giants and Farah Elle. Tickets are €10 and are available from Eventbrite.
