Paul Noonan & Daithí’s new band HousePlants debuted with ‘What’s With All The Pine?’, a song inspired by the last year’s Zoom window preoccupations.

Today, the pair of Houseplants have announced a debut album entitled Dry Goods to be released in September, and shared their second single an electro square-waved synth track inspired by the gathering at Dublin Castle on the day when Marriage Equality was passed in Ireland, just over five years ago.

“Companero was born as a collective remembering of the marriage equality referendum in Ireland, and the euphoria of the day when people gathered at Dublin Castle to celebrate that milestone in our journey towards becoming a more open, liberal society. It’s also a banger!… fast and frenetic, with Daithí adding the snarling synth to my singing and drumming… and was the first HousePlants song that we worked on from our respective caves during lockdown, lobbing our parts across the ether.”
