Up-and-coming indie-pop artist The Danger Is (aka Dubliner Niamh Farrell) has announced a headline show at Crawdaddy of Harcourt Street in Dublin on Saturday the 5th of March 2011. Farrell’s self-titled debut EP has been making waves since its release in 2010. Support on the night will come from Tony Wright’s (ASIWYFA) new project Versechorusverse. Tickets €10 (inc. booking fee) are available now from Ticketmaster, City Discs, and usual outlets nationwide.
The Danger Is:
The Danger is the working title adopted by Dublin based artist Niamh Farrell for her musical endeavours. Niamh has been writing for years and after a two-year period of experimentation has created a 4-track E.P. recorded in Wicklow in 2010 and produced by Ken Mc Hugh. The E.P. confronts a multitude of emotions; from fear to happiness, love and its confusions. It is laced with honesty and humour and features climactic instrumental arrangements.
Niamh graduated from N.C.A.D. with a degree in fine art in 2008. Her art and music strive to question our place within the world and within ourselves. An important element of The Danger Is, is the artwork. It consists of an imagined horizon combining the past and the present, the personal and the universal. These micro/macro landscapes and musical experimentation enable The Danger Is to present an animated, hopeful and honest perspective of life and a young musician interrogating the idea of what happens when complacency rules.
Some highlights of recent months include performances in Crawdaddy supporting Warpaint, The Olympia supporting The Coronas, and supporting Brit Award winning Ellie Goulding on her Irish tour dates.
Niamh will also be featured in the upcoming season of RTE’s Other Voices.
“Farrell’s eponymous debut EP contains four confident alt folk ditties, each brimming with emotion and humour (see the delightfully-titled ‘Rub Who You Love’), while standout track ‘All for Gold’ has a sneaky tribal underbelly. Feist fans, form an orderly queue.” ~ Celina Murphy- Hotpress, Dec 2010
“Striking, classic indie-pop with alluring ties and bows from Niamh Farrell” ~ Jim Carroll – Irish Times “The Ticket”, Nov 2010
