Currently based in Belfast, Scots/Canadian musician Peter Sumadh, aka The Mad Dalton, is making the kind of music that’s quite befitting to these ever-darkening evenings. Drawing on influences like Tom Waits and Neil Young, Sumadh’s use of simple yet elegant chord progressions and understated vocals are reminiscent of the darker folk trends that saw out the ’60s and the Summer of Love for the uncertainty of a new generation. With his band of friends and fellow musicians bolstering the sound, The Little Belfry EP is a uniquely captivating exercise in subdued, emotive song-making and is out November 6th. To get acquainted, we heartily recommend the title track and a long, brisk walk through cracked, amber leaves and Autumn skies. Soul food.
The Little Belfry EP launch will be held on The Belfast Barge feat. a live performance from The Mad Dalton & his band along with some special guests. The event is BYOB & tickets are available in advance here.
