About Me

Me, Myself, and I
Already creating a stir with their unique live show, Halves are a
distinctive new Dublin-based group. Fronted by four talented
multi-instrumentalists, Halves' rich and idiosyncratic sound crosses
genre, challenging convention as guitar meets accordion, violin meets
melodica. Diverse and truly novel, Halves blend a range of instruments
– the glockenspiel one moment, the piano the next – over guitar crescendos, haunting strings and both acoustic and electronic drums.

Members Brian, Elis, Tim and Dave run their live show on the adrenaline of improvisation, as layers are made and sampled on the fly. This is all complemented by live projection from visuals duo "slipdraft"

Halves are exceptional on the Irish scene. Broadly influenced, Halves
craft intense, deeply resonant sound-scapes. Delicate classical motifs
expand over electronic distortions while ambient drums and bass create
depth and immediacy. Theirs is a rich, multi-layered sound, ambitious,
lush and cinematic

    No, it's Halves - no "The" (I've been corrected on this already - I still have the switch marks on my ass). I've heard The Halves are not half as good as Halves so there! Roll on May 17th in Whelans! Yeah!

    Nice skin! Simple but cool. Also, like the windfarm pic. That song has been on continuous repeat in my head for weeks! Looking forward to more.
