The Certain Three Tour feat. Nanu Nanu, Si Schroeder & Trumpets of Jericho Details
The Certain Three Tour returns for its fourth annual outing this January & February.
Continuing on in the tradition of the last three years – where booking agency Word of Mouth curates a triple bill of three very different acts and sends them out on tour – the 2013 tour will feature a diverse and compelling lineup, with an alternating running order for each show. Previous tours have featured Katie Kim, O Emperor, We Cut Corners, The Lost Brothers and Alessi’s Ark, amongst others.
The lineup for the Certain Three Tour 2013 will feature three home-grown Irish acts: electro-pop duo Nanu Nanu, lo-fi shoegazer Si Schroeder and the post-punk of Trumpets of Jericho.
Nanu Nanu are an Alien-Pop duo based in Dublin. Members Mirrorman and Glitterface use analog and modular synthesizers teamed with a strong foundation of heavy beats and lush, otherworldly vocal processing to create their exciting and unique ‘Alien-Pop’ sound.
They have just finished their debut album, which will be released in early 2013 on Flaming June. Their debut single will be Pocket of Gold. It has been mixed by producer Rob Kirwan; the man who mixed PJ Harvey’s Mercury Prize winning album Let England Shake.
Si Schroeder is a Dublin-based musician who mixes his voice with guitars, samples, acoustic instruments, beats and live drums to create haunting and uplifting melodic songs exploring the darker side of the human condition. A layered approach to composition and production results in dense, textured blends of synthetic and organic sounds, over which Si’s warm, soothing voice unravels stories of chaos and destruction.
His debut album, the critically acclaimed Choice Music Prize nominated Coping Mechanisms (2006), was the Irish Times’ record of the week, Foggy Notions’ album of the year, and is in the Hot Press list of top Irish albums of all time.
TRUMPETS OF JERICHO
Trumpets of Jericho are a folk-tinged post-punk band from Cork, formed in 2010.
After two years of creating some semblance of a sound that they can call ‘Their Own’, the group finally decided to record their debut Songs Like an Alum Ut Its Nor Really, garnering praise and indifference in equal measure. Their energetic live shows have built them a strong and loyal following in the south of Ireland (i.e. Cork) and they recently opened for The Fall, which is pretty cool.
