KIRAN LEONARD

NATIONAL TOUR 2018

UPSTAIRS AT WHELANS, DUBLIN – NOVEMBER 22ND

TICKETS €15 ON SALE FRIDAY AT 10AM

Kiran Leonard has announced a brand new album Western Culture, released 19th October 2018 on Moshi Moshi. Today, he shares its lead single "Paralysed Force" and announced a headline show Upstairs at Whelans, November 22nd. Kiran Leonard: ""Paralysed Force" is about how insecurities you should settle within yourself often get transplanted onto other people you know. Projecting the question towards another allows you to shirk responsibility for your own wellbeing, but all this does is suspend the issue at hand, and prolong an inevitable falling back. "There's also a sort of compulsiveness, a wanting to be suspended, that's involved in

it all, because sometimes it feels good not to have to think about yourself. I suppose the song's about being caught between those two points -- basically, that even if you know you're being irresponsible (and possibly daft), there's still a desire to give yourself up." The album Western Culture marks a huge sonic progression due, in part, to the involvement of his venerable live band (Andrew Cheetham on drums, Dave Rowe on bass and Dan Bridgewood-Hill on guitar, synth and violin) on record for the first time. It is also the first Kiran Leonard album to have been made in a professional studio. "It was nice not having to spend 2+ years recording an LP in drips in my front room," says Leonard. "It was mostly smashed out over nine days or so makes it a lot more focused than my long-ass records usually are. I think it’s both more accessible and more peculiar than my other records. There’s a nice Bon Jovi solo at the end of the seventh track." Kiran Leonard is a 22 year old musician from Saddleworth, Greater Manchester. Debut album proper Bowler Hat Soup (2014) and follow-up Grapefruit (2016) were both recorded at home, with Kiran playing virtually every instrument himself. Derevaun Seraun (2017), a concept album in five movements inspired by five pieces of literature and arranged for piano, strings and voice, was an ambitious departure from his usual sound. Kiran Leonard has also just announced UK and Ireland headline dates for October / November, as well as a London date at The Victoria on 29th August which will serve as a warm up for their appearance at End Of The Road Festival the following day. Please read on for a full list of tourdates, as well as Kiran's complete statement on Western Culture and its influences. Download hi-res Kiran Leonard photo Download hi-res Western Culture artwork
