Having recently extended his Australian tour due to overwhelming demand, Irish troubadour James Vincent McMorrow has announced Airling will support his shows nationally.
Airling (aka Hannah Shepherd joined by Brisbane multi-instrumentalist Graham Ritchie) will bring otherworldly vocals, lush electronics and dreamlike beats to the tour, including the recently announced second and final performance at Vivid LIVE 2014 on Saturday 31 May.
After wrapping up his current North American tour, which includes a string of sold out shows and a spot on Coachella in April, McMorrow will hit Australian shores once again following the release of his sophomore LP Post Tropical.
Boldly cracking the iTunes Top 5 Chart on release, and snagging triple j’s first Feature Album of the year, McMorrow’s second LP Post Tropical was quickly hailed a “musical masterpiece” (Herald Sun); rendering audiences breathless across his Falls & Southbound performances, and two SOLD OUT headline shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
