“Vertiginous, violet-they scroll across the sky, words with wings VVV, whether wrens or angels one cannot determine, perhaps an alternate universe fusion of both, up down, high, low-dizzy, still; at peace, at war: redemption dreams arise from the clay: soul’s peace, as the bird in the bough its little eye closes slowly: all is chance, they say, indeed-save this, indisputably, O’ Neill’s Art’s gentle triumph.” – Pat McCabe

Exciting day yesterday at NPR Music’s Tiny Desk. Thank you to Bob Boilen and all his crew for the incredibly warm welcome into DC. Thank you to Anthony Mulcahy for taking some lovely photographs and thank you for coming out to the shows and all the support on this American tour so far. If you enjoyed Niall Connolly who opened the show last night as much as I did, then a heads up – he has a single coming out this Friday. And we will let you know when the Tiny Desk is released.
Onwards to the west coast and looking forward to the shows at Largo in Los Angeles tomorrow and Swedish American Hall Cafe Du Nord in San Francisco on Saturday.
