Location: RYAN’S BAR (Bridgets Festival)
Conchúr White will release his debut album “Swirling Violets” in January 2024 via Bella Union. White has also recently shared the striking first single “I Did Good Today”. Commenting on the track Conchúr says “I Did Good Today” is a song about craving validation but understanding that such approval can come at the expense of honesty or integrity. Musically I reference the likes of Midlake, Aldous Harding and Bleachers.
A singer-songwriter from Co Armagh, Northern Ireland, White navigates the dreamlike and the grounded with blissful fluency on his beautifully lambent debut album. “Swirling Violets” is allusive and intimate, unearthly yet instantly accessible: touching on fully felt themes with grace and lightness, it’s a richly imagined album of multitudes from an instinctive talent.
A music graduate who has also worked alongside young people with mental health issues, White’s story began in bands. He played in atmospheric indie-rockers Silences before their split allowed Conchúr to develop his solo voice at his own pace. That sense of freedom colours Conchúr’s music. On the Bikini Crops and Dreamers EPs, he filtered the influences of acts such as Arctic Monkeys (recent vintage) and Father John Misty into songs at once playful, referential and experiential.
