Pre-order the new album by SOnance HOtel

By SOnance HOtel


This record is the sound and the workings of an individual who has reached a turning point in his existence. Brian Gallagher, the creative mind behind SOnance HOtel, is a Dublin-born musician and songwriter who plied his trade as drummer in notable Irish rock group Humanzi. He also is part of Irish group The Mighty Stef, with whom he tours  frequently and is an integral part of the creative process. It was with Humanzi that he found himself living in Berlin, which began the conception for this record.

Originally the project unfolded as a home recording project, crafting these tunes whenever and wherever he could find the opportunity. Sonically, there is a beautiful blend of lush 90's style indie/electronic music production, simple songwriting and intelligent musicianship, which is virtually the work of one man. All of the material being composed, arranged, performed and produced by Brian Gallagher. The phrase DIY masterpiece would not be too far from the truth.

Lyrically this record began to take shape following Gallagher's decision to move back to his native Dublin to prepare for the arrival of his firstborn son. This was a huge watershed in the life of a songwriter who was writing his debut record, needless to say the songs tell the story of a man who is about to embark on the next exciting chapter of life's great adventure and the overall feel of the album takes the listener by the hand and invites us on this brave personal sonic adventure.

No doubt, influenced by Brian Gallagher's limitless musical taste, SOnance HOtel's 'Don't Look Behind You' is a very well rounded piece of work and should be discovered and enjoyed by the music lovers of this galaxy, and beyond...
