Sinead O’Brien at The Deaf Institute

Sinead O’Brien

Irish artist Sinead O’Brien debut album Time Bend and Break The Bower, was released in June via Chess Club Records which was accompanied by new single ‘Holy Country’ which premiered on Steve Lamacq’s show on BBC Radio 6 Music. O’Brien played Manchester Psych Fest in 2021 and we’re excited to welcome the band back to Manchester.

Relentless, surreal, incendiary, O’Brien operates inside her own atmosphere as she constantly forms her response to the contemporary world she moves through. With the release of her debut album the artist is blazing a trail into the new – always questioning, and asking you to join her. In the space that exists between her delivery – at once wry, silky, vicious, self-assured – and the music – a dynamic, dancing call-and-response from her collaborators, guitarist Julian Hanson and drummer Oscar Robertson – lies a productive tension. O’Brien carves out her own space as a musical oracle for an ever-shifting era.
