Halves

Halves Profile

One of Ireland’s most intriguing acts, Halves blend a vast range of instruments, acoustic and electronic, and guarantee an evocative, cinematic live experience. Their three releases to date have met with universal critical success. Their eagerly awaited debut album is due for release later in 2010. This was recorded last August in Montreal by Efrim Menuck of ” Godspeed You! Black Emperor “.

In the past few months Halves played SXSW, made their debut tv performance, topping the viewers choice poll on RTE’s ‘Other Voices’ series in Spring ’09, [ playing alongside the likes of Elbow and Lisa Hannigan ]. They have also just released their debut single ” Blood branches ” on split 7’’ vinyl with their friends ” Subplots “.

Halves have achieved a truly impressive resume since their debut gig in May ‘07. They have played all of Ireland’s major music festivals, Oxegen’08, the Electric Picnic [ ‘07 and ‘08 ] and the Hard Working Class Heroes festival [ ‘07 and ‘08 ] sharing bills with [ Sigur Ros ] ~ [ Rage against the Machine ] ~ [ My Bloody Valentine ] and [ Bjork ].

They were also one of only 4 Irish acts selected to play the prestigious Eurosonic ‘08 festival in Holland (to a packed house), and since have also played festivals in the UK [ London Calling June’08 ] and Canada [ Canadian Music Week March’09 ]. They have also supported the likes of British Sea Power, 65 Days Of Static, BellX1 and Cathy Davey, and were voted as having produced one of the finest Irish releases of 2007 with their first EP. In May of last year the band released their critically acclaimed record ‘Haunt Me When I’m Drowsy’. This seven track EP displayed Halves’ growing diversity of sound, and both eps were released across Europe and the US last Summer through Cargo.

AU magazine ~ There is a rare sense of equilibrium to this record; from the blood quickening title track to the bruised heard tenderness of ‘Amberscene’, all is lovingly thought out and executed. In fact, for all their celestial ambition, you’ll be hard pressed to find a single superfluous note.
