Idiot Songs is a collaboration between composer Justin Grounds and songwriter Pearse McGloughlin. The album of electronic chamber songs draws upon the themes and characters presented in Dostoevsky’s The Idiot and was recorded using traditional and non traditional approaches; the collection was largely recorded via Dropbox.
Devils is the second video from Idiot Songs’ self titled album directed by Kevin and Pearse McGloughlin. A video released earlier this year for Villages of Ether received a Staff Pick from Vimeo.
Idiot Songs are currently on tour and will play DeBarra’s in Clonakilty tomorrow Thursday 31st October.
