Slow Place Like Home release a new single digitally today, 19th June, via Strange Brew Rekkids. Slow Place Like Home is the recording moniker of Donegal artist Keith Mannion.  This is the follow up to the 2016 single “Tiger Lilly”.

The single was written between Knather Woods, Ballyshannon, Co. Donegal, and the Algarve in Portugal. It was recorded and produced in its entirety by in Keith’s bedroom studio in Donegal and mastered by Antony Ryan (Morr Music label) in Denmark.

“It was a landmark shift of sound for the SPLH project. The parameters used for creating previous compositions were abandoned and it surged like new blood in the veins.  ‘When I See You…’ was initially conceived on a Casio SK-5 unit and deployed to several other instruments before becoming the beast it evolved into. Vocal samples by myself were chopped up, treated and tempered to the track. At the heart of it is an 8-bit frenzy, ready for nostalgic earlobes.”

The video was filmed in Donegal and co-directed by Keith and Michael Liston.

Keith’s influences range from the rich soul of Marvin Gaye, to the hard edge of XTC, Patti Smith and The Slits. Add the psychedelic textures of Captain Beefheart and CAN. Sprinkle in a bit of New Orleans spice like Dr. John and Duke Ellington and you’re almost there.
