Seamus Fogarty – Carlow Town (Official Video)


Fogarty also shares new song ‘Carlow Town’; taken from The Curious Hand, it recounts with Homerian flourish, a night spent sleeping in a church backed by a squelching electronic beat, dirty analogue bassline and various synthesiser wheezes, vocal glitches and other sounds from Seamus’ sandbox of strange noises.

The video, directed by Jack Barraclough, features Fogarty alongside his bandmates Emma Smith and Aram Zarikian in a number of unusual poses as they work their way through a series of choreographed adventures intertwined with beautiful hand drawn animation courtesy of Finnish artist Venla Linna.

Seamus says of the video: “I wanted to do something that would reflect the variety of styles and influences that people will hopefully hear on the record. Jack has made some of my favourite videos and I wanted to get the other two (Emma & Aram) in on the act because they are amazing dancers and played a huge part in getting the album across the line”
