Double-header of the year. The calm before the storm. Aiken Promotions & Harmonic give you a night of serene music beauty. An Irish exclusive. A meeting of great minds. A night you’ll remember forever. Explosions In The Sky of Texas. Low of Minnesota. A show that had to happen once in a lifetime.
“Texans Explosions In The Sky have not only stuck faithfully to their roots, they’ve made the defining album of their career.” – NME
“It’s just one eye-opening surge of splendour, like the first gasp of a newborn baby taking in the world for the very first time. The difference with this album: that sense of wonder never fades.” BBC Music
“…beautifully realised mini-symphonies that invite comparisons with a leaner Godspeed You! Black Emperor, all defined by epic, awe-inspiring crescendos.” Q
“With subtle sonic shifts (such as chanting on the almost-poppy “Trembling Hands”), the songs are reliably dynamic, turning hushed beats and lightly scratched guitar into overwhelming drama.” SPIN
“It’s familiar but refreshing, evidence that a dinosaur genre like “post-rock” can still sound vital.” Filter
“…for a Low album to be awash with impossible beauty and spellbinding drama is par for the course, but the difference with C’mon is its formidable sense of assurance, rendering it the sound of an exceptional band finally ready to step out of the shadows.” Drowned in Sound 9/10
“C’mon is such a delight, simultaneously luscious in their orchestration and muted in their delivery. Beautiful.” Clash Magazine 9/10
“This intensity and force, despite the stillness, brings a new dimension to Low’s sound and makes C’Mon an interesting addition to an already impressive body of work.” The Wire
“Nothing But Heart finds Parker and Sparhawk meditatively harmonizing “I’m nothing but heart,” over a pulsating rhythm section that glacially builds to a plangent crescendo, it’s the pivotal moment on this superb record, but could also serve as the mantra for this terrific band’s career.” Under the Radar
“Low already gets plenty of credit — and dismissal — for doing that slow, elegiac, crumbling beauty thing so well. But that’s only half the story. As with “Try to Sleep” and much of C’mon, there’s often something turbulent, even dangerous, beneath the placid surface.” Paste Magazine
