Following on from his debut EP released in 2013, Ian O’Doherty returns with “Woven” a single which introduces a new sound from the Kerryman.
This latest offering released on indie label Fat of the Land Records represents a very deliberate and pronounced change of direction for O’Doherty. Production duties were shared with O Emperor’s Brendan Fennessy who also plays drums on the track and it was recorded at the band’s Cork based “DIY” Big Skin Studios.
Getting a little bit outside the comfort zone suits O’Doherty as his layered vocals pour over old school synths and syncopated guitars, all pinned down by Fennessy’s frantic drum pattern.
‘Woven’ is due for online release Friday May 16th with limited physical copies available for order from moc.ytrehodonai@ofni
The official video for the song was announced today and can be found underneath the tour dates below.
