Artist: SIRKUT SON
Who: The multi-media project of John Rooney, the Derry-born, Berlin-based musician and illustrator who formally released music under the mantle Haüer via Future City Records. His debut album Photo Sensitive is an album of nine expansive futuristic songs which move away from Haüer’s instrumental hypnogogic-pop sound and into a darker, more foreboding cold-wave territory.
Track: YOU HAVE USED ME FOR LONG ENOUGH – “Lyrically the song is about picking up and leaving my life behind me in Dublin and venturing over to Berlin” – the first single from his upcoming debut album Photo Sensitive on 4 September
Score: Get ready to move and groove. ‘You Have Used Me For Long Enough’ is an elevating synth-pop humdinger with Rooney‘s arresting baritone voice bringing living legend Scott Walker instantly to mind. Moving from Dublin to Berlin, he wants to start again. Great vibe, great tune, great vox.
