After working his magic on Lisa Hannigan, doing most of the videos for her new album, including my favourite ‘Knots‘, Myles O’Reilly has turned his attention to Delorentos. They recently played a handful of acoustic shows around the country, including Triskel Christchurch in Cork, and above is an example of what they sounded like. I think wistful describes it quite well. The four lads look genuinely happy on top of a roof in the early morning playing ‘Hunting’. There’s a new album set to be released on January 27, Little Sparks, which is also the name of their recent EP and magazine, and a tour to come in the weeks after. Tour dates after the jump.
