DANIEL O’SULLIVAN is a composer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer living and working in South West London and has been contributing a vibrant, chameleonic brew to the music landscape since the late 1990's. He has achieved acclaim writing, recording and performing with a myriad of groups including Grumbling Fur (with longtime friend and collaborator Alexander Tucker), Ulver, Mothlite, Sunn O))), Guapo, Miasma & the Carousel of Headless Horses, Miracle, Æthenor and This Is Not This Heat. He has composed several sound works for film and installation.
Whether solo or in his varied collaborative projects, O’Sullivan’s work is remarkable in the way it infuses familiar everyday experience with traces of the uncanny, the secret and the magickal. His 2017 solo album VELD distilled these tangled realities into a rich and complex soundworld, strikingly dense and allusive. Released in April by O Genesis, Folly is O’Sullivan’s second album under his own name and embodies a confident, evolution from VELD. This cycle of twelve songs deftly illustrates O'Sullivan's ascent as a unique and multidimensional songwriter. Moving from the familiar pantheon of experimental music and arriving upon a universal narrative probing the human condition from the inside out. Both lyrically and within the intricate lattice of arrangements, traditional forms are reshaped into transcendent pop symphonies. Both intimate and alien, archetypal and atypical, joyous and melancholic, the aperture of Folly is wide open and light streams in.
AOIFE NESSA FRANCES is a Dublin born musician and singer-song writer. She is inspired by the poetic styles of folk music and psychedelic rock.
