November 14th Lineup
Dublin-based songwriter and producer of otherworldly, abstract pop.
Abbacaxi is a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist and producer based in Dublin. Beginning his performing career as a teen playing rock and funk, he later dove deep into crafting songs strongly rooted in House beats, influences that continue to inform his sound.
Sebastian Plano is a composer, producer, and multi-instrumentalist based in Berlin. His ability to create large soundscapes overlaying multiple instruments by himself has gained him international acclaim, placing him as one of the pioneering artists combining classical and electronic elements.
Watch All Falling Skies live from Funkhaus Berlin:
December 12th Lineup
Autre Monde is a band from Dublin who traverses the boundaries of art-rock, electro-pop and post-punk; formed by Paddy Hanna, Padraig Cooney, Eoghan O’Brien, and Mark Chester in 2017.
Their debut album The Imaginary Museum is due out on Strange Brew in early 2020. Put together over several sessions with Girl Band’s Daniel Fox, the album’s 9 songs mark a definitive statement. It is a predominantly dark record, dotted with moments that are islands of purest pop in the icy sonic sea.
Since starting out as a solo performer in 2011, Irish artist Elaine Mai has been crafting a reputation for atmospheric and melodic electronic music; with a skill for lilting harmonies and storytelling through rhythm and repetition.
Fragile and expansive chambery-folk music from Austin Moore of Cork, Ireland. Written through movements and collaborations across Australia, Canada, France, Cambodia, Belgium and back.
