Niamh Farrell (not to be confused with Niamh Farrell from Ham Sandwich) is responsible for The Danger Is. Farrell who studied painting at NCAD has been writing music for years and has pored her musical knowledge into this indie-pop project. The songs are breezy and Farrell’s voice stands out thanks to her ability to inject emotion, range and choir-inspired backing vocals into the mix. Her debut four-track EP which was released late last year. It was recorded in Wicklow produced by Ken McHugh. Look out for her on this season’s Other Voices too.
The Danger Is play Whelan’s Ones to Watch on Saturday.
