When Under Ether – A new RTE music TV show debuts tonight

The curiously named When Under Ether (after a Polly Jean Harvey song title) debuts tonight at 11.50pm on RTE Two.

It’s the first of a six-part video-based alternative music series which will broadcast on Tuesday nights and presented by former Nightshift presenter & Phantom 105.2 DJ Michelle Doherty and musician & former Nightshift producer Elton Mullally.

The show covers all aspects of the alternative music scene, with a keen eye on homegrown talent. It will feature a dynamic video playlist, band interviews, live performances, and a comprehensive guide to gigs and cultural events nationwide.

Featured artists in Episode 1 include: The XX, Arctic monkeys, Grizzly Bear, Super Furry Animals, Ann Scott, Health, and Talking Heads.

Dave Geraghty is interviewed having just released his excellent second solo album ‘The Victory Dance’. Delorentos are live guests performing brand new single SECRET.
