Strange Attractor Release ‘Ain’t That Strange’ (feat. Clodagh Kearney)

Strange Attractor have just released the single ‘Ain’t That Strange’ (feat. Clodagh Kearney).

Strange Attractor are a festive Funk/Pop band from Dingle Co. Kerry, who draw influence from artists, such as Bruno Mars, Chic and James Brown. The band consist of Ben Bickerdike on lead vocals, Fionn O’ Neill on vocals/guitar, Mattie Barker on lead guitar, Cian O Sullivan on drums and Ben Janning on bass. Various session musicians often feature with the group including keyboardists, brass sections and guest vocalists.

In their 5 years together Strange Attractor have performed in many venues across Ireland whilst playing the country’s most prestigious festivals, including Electric Picnic, Cork Jazz Festival and Other Voices. The group have toured Germany and played UK festivals, such as Wilderness Festival in Oxfordshire. The bands latest single “Ain’t That Strange” (feat. Clodagh Kearney) released on April 1st 2018 is an impressive example of what the band are capable of musically and has set the tone for the next two singles, which are due later this year.

Strange Attractor have received much praise by media and prominent musicians, having been described as:

Keepin’ the funk alive!” – Bootsy Collins (James Brown, Parliament/Funkadelic)

A vibrant blend of soul, jazz and R&B sounds brought to life by on point musicianship and a booming brass section.” – Stephen White (The Last Mixedtape)
