Patrick Kelleher / European Sensoria Band
Dublin-based Patrick Kelleher has been making echo-drenched ghost pop since 2008. His performances, cryptic yet honest communications, are at once soberly engaging and eerily detatched.
Evolving out of the frenzy of his Cold Dead Hands, the instrumentation of Kelleher’s solo act has been stripped to little more than his somnolent vocals, heavy beats and sporadic arpeggios.
The reverb clouds westering, clearer and colder sonic skies lie ahead.
European Sensoria Band
European Sensoria Band (E+S=B for short) formed when long-time Wormhole fan Fergus Cullen asked twin brothers Anthony and David Carroll to play with him at legendary Dublin improv club Lazybird. Ditching the guitars in favour of Casio keyboards and adding electro-drumpad expert Adrienne Flynn of Memory Cells, E+S=B was born. With releases on their own Last Of Our Kind label as well as Deserted Village and Ninepoint records they have played and recorded with the likes of Japanese artists Damo Suzuki and Itaru Oki among others. Since then, taking inspiration from the American Free jazz scene of the 60s, E+S=B have scaled down to a three-piece line-up consisting of Fergus on bass clarinet, David on drums and Anthony on bass.
