Cork band Shookrah have been around for a couple of years now, releasing a fine debut EP in 2014. They also possess, in Senita Appiakorang, one of the finest vocalists in the country (check out her other group Lakerama). The six piece are gearing up to release the Cliches EP shortly and ‘Gerascophobia’ – an abnormal or persistence fear of growing old or ageing – is our first taster. It sounds huge, a smorgasbord of funk that, according to the PR, “rails against society’s never-ending quest for eternal youth”. Dubbed alternative soul, there’s absolutely loads going on, Senita’s declaration that “did you know it’s a blessing to age” sticking with you along with some ridiculous guitar solos. ‘Gerascophobia’ is officially released March 3.
