KILNAMANA are calling it a day, and leaving on a series of high notes with their four track EP ‘Bye Bye’.
Taking inspiration for their name from the area of Tallaght, Dublin, where the two musicians realised they had a common connection, KILNAMANA are electronic Irish-Spanish duo Enda Gallery and Miguel Garcia Soler, currently based in Berlin. KILNAMANA was always based on creating naturally and not pretending, staying true to themselves.
The working title of the first album was as in the song ‘Not To Pretend’. Having celebrated 1 million streams, at the end of a very expressive tour supporting Kid Simius across Germany, Austria, and Poland last December, the pair felt that it the time to begin the end of the project and did not want to continue on simply because things were going smoothly.
Gallery says: “It was always about feeling right for us, it always did, and now it doesn’t. Now it feels like time to say goodbye with four final songs, so that the positive feeling around it will be preserved for eternity, we’re going out with four bangers.
We want to thank all the people who gave us a shot, an opportunity, and gave us their time and their love, those who shed a light on us, wrote to us, played us and playlisted us, booked us and came to our shows, and listened to our music. You are all the ones who keep art alive, giving resonance to messages you intuitively feel are honest and true. Thank you deeply and eternally for that.”
The EP features two new tracks, ‘Song from 1954’, and ‘WHEN YOU KNOW THE RIGHT ANSWER BUT YOU CAN’T CHANGE HOW YOU FEEL’.
