Bio: One of Ireland's most intriguing acts, Halves blend a vast range of instruments, acoustic and electronic, and guarantee an evocative, cinematic live experience. Their three releases to date have met with universal critical success, as well as earning them ardent fans from Tokyo to Seattle. Halves have developed their live show into something truly captivating; a mix of synched visuals, strings, brass, and electronics, anchored by soaring guitars and live drums. Broadly influenced, they craft intense, deeply resonant sound-scapes, blending a range of instruments - bells and glockenspiel one moment, the piano and accordion the next - over guitar crescendos, haunting strings and both acoustic and electronic drums. Theirs is a rich, multi-layered sound, ambitious, lush and cinematic.
