Dreaming of Jupiter are reaping their stage fame, following a successful UK tour at the start of the year, with their trippy electro-soul pop. Their music is a fascinating fusion of ambient and electronic, with deep groove and soul singing.
Shane Ó Fearghail, singer-songwriter, fits perfectly into the wonderful Irish-indie folk niche. On stage he enthuses the audience with energy, passion and stories in song full of pathos, which really get under your skin.
