How do you feel about a new seven minute long Rarely Seen Above Ground single? If you’re like us (and you’d better be), you will say thank you very much and press that play button below. Kilkenny’s Jeremy Hickey aka Rarely Seen Above Ground (formerly R.S.A.G.) returns as a collective entity with Colm O’Caoimh on bass and with a new single ‘This Winding Sheet’ that harks back to the sound of his first album, yet pushes the envelope into interesting electronic sound additions. Drums propel the song while all manner of interesting bleeps, synths, guitar, bass and eventually vocals, work around it. It’s lovely stuff.
Rarely Seen Above Ground returns to live performances at Electric Picnic on The Crawdaddy Stage at Electric Picnic this Saturday 4th September and then The Workman’s Club first birthday on September 9th (€12). New shows and subsequent recordings will see Hickey add live bass from Colm O’Caoimh along with new visuals at show.
