David Geraghty, founding member of Bell X1, continues to explore his solo direction under the moniker Join Me In The Pines with the release of ‘Two to Fall in Love’.
The single, just released, represents a move away from the dark folk of previous albums, embracing a joyous sound with hints of Prince, Bowie and Nile Rodgers.
‘Two to Fall in Love’ has an electropop sensibility underpinned by a brooding bassline, with Geraghty’s atmospheric vocals gliding over the top.
Geraghty has just announced Summer full band tour which will preview the bold new musical direction. Geraghty says, “I really enjoyed getting back out there on the recent solo tour, but I’m so excited to perform the new album with the Join Me in the Pines band in May and June.
“The reaction to the new songs in February was great but now it’s time to get the groove on with the band.”
David will be joined on the road by Marc Aubele (keyboards), Mick Major (bass and vocals) and Daragh Mayon (drums and vocals).
A new album will be forthcoming later this year with mixing duties undertaken by Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow, Brian Deady). This will be David’s fourth solo release and the second under Join Me in the Pines.
Join Me in the Pines plays Dolan’s on Friday June 8.
