Merakindie is kicking off the first of a monthly residency in The Sky & The Ground, Wexford with a BIG end of summer party, bringing the immensely energetic electro-pop duo Le Boom down from Dublin.
Doors 9pm // Tickets 10e
Their energetic late-night live shows have attracted media and industry attention not only in Ireland but also in the US. Since forming in the summer of 2016, Le Boom have played shows in New York (tour), Iceland (Airwaves) and to their ever-growing following at home in Ireland.
Dubliner Christy Leech spent last summer playing music and DJing in Brooklyn warehouses, a fine time that lead to some home-recorded dance music with a broken bass, a gutted guitar and some melodic muscle. Now back in Ireland an teaming up with Aimie Mallon, the twosome’s live show is the most energetic and dun around. ‘What We Do is their release so far, a single of Hot Chip-style synth-pop and lo-fi dancefloor atmospherics.
