Funeral Suits + Capture @ CarréRotondes, 27 August 2014


Funeral Suits are a four-piece from Ireland consisting of Brian James, Mik McKeogh, Greg McCarthy and Dar Grant. The music they make is expansive without being overblown, heavy without being menacing and all the more thrilling for its restraint.A shared love of epic, distorted guitars, blistering harmonius pop, art rock and electronica led to the band spending the best part of two years holed up in a disused office space in deepest North County Dublin, writing, rehearsing and at times venturing out to play as special guests for Franz Ferdinand, Passion Pit, The Maccabees, Local Natives amongst others. In 2012, Funeral Suits have recorded their debut album „Lily Of The Valley“ with acclaimed producer Stephen Street (Blur, The Smiths) which has been released on Model Citizen records.

Born in Nancy, France in 2011, Capture have carved their sound in the British coldwave genre. But this is far from being the only trait the four-piece has to offer, as they continually try to dig deeper into sound excavations to bring forth a youthful and powerful noise best enjoyed live. Their brilliant performances and exceptional writing have allowed them to share the stage and rub shoulders with the likes of BRNS, Juveniles, Sébastien Tellier, Breton et Poni Hoax. Read pop’s elite.
