Usually found fronting Belfast quartet Girls Names, Cathal Cully’s debut foray into solo territory sees its release today. Under the guise of Group Zero, Cully’s first album proper is called Structures and Light and emerges via Belfast’s Touch Sensitive label, our recent partners for Output Belfast. Something of a sonic departure for Cully, the record is a collection of tracks bathed in angular electro – oscillating arpeggiated synthesisers; Drexciya-esque percussive runs; gritty, atmospheric timbres that arrive via the soundscapes of Detroit and Cologne; and evocative, resonant guitars.
It’s quite breathtaking in scope, and you can see in the launch of Structures and Light this evening, at the Black Box, Belfast. Support comes Jonny (Low Profile) and Mark (Touch Sensitive), and you can find the finer details here.
Listen to Structures and Light below, and keep an eye out for an upcoming interview with Cathal here on State.
