MAIJA SOFIA, and A Lilac Decline, two Galway indie singer-songwriters, play the next Eclectics night at The Black Gate Cultural Centre, St Francis Street, on Wednesday July 3 at 9pm.
County Galway born, Dublin based, Maija Sofia has performed at Other Voices, Electric Picnic, and the London Antifolk festival, and supported Joan As Police Woman and Stella Donnelly. Her 2018 single 'Flowers' was included in DIY magazine's best new music list. Hot Press called her "Jesus and Mary Chain meets Angel Olsen", while The Last Mixed Tape compared her to Phil Spector, Scott Walker and PJ Harvey. She is currently recording her debut album.
A Lilac Decline is the musical pseudonym of visual artist Cecilia Danell. Her debut album The Mountain Rages (Rusted Rail, 2017 ) was described by The Galway Advertiser as "gentle, lyrical, yet intensely personal, folk influenced songs" which "thematically moves from vulnerability to yearning, to faltering hope.”
Admission is €10.
