Newly signed to Bella Union, Conchúr White recently shared lush new single, “Atonia”. Allusive but intimate, surreal but accessible, White’s silky and singular songs always approach their subjects sideways on: sometimes dreamy and theatrical, sometimes grounded and sumptuously melodic, his work beguiles by stealth and contains multitudes.
A sense of freedom colours Conchúr’s music. On the Bikini Crops and Dreamers EPs, he filtered the influences of acts such as Arctic Monkeys and Father John Misty into songs at once playfully referential and dipped in authentic experience. Drawing praise from SPIN, The Line of Best Fit, Under the Radar and others, he also notched up touring slots with Villagers, Billie Marten and John Grant
