Perlee present an intimate 'in the round' performance at Solstice to celebrate the launch of their new four-track EP Slow Creature.

A few years ago Saramai Leech and Cormac O’Keeffe settled in an out-of-the-way cottage on an estate a few miles out from their home town Navan, Co. Meath. They made a studio in their kitchen and when they left the door open the peahens and chickens would curiously make their way inside. During these years in the ‘middle of nowhere’ with feathered creatures and tall old trees, Perlee was born. Vocal harmonies, synths, strangely tuned and detuned reverberant guitars abound in a vast yet minimal sound.

They drove to Berlin in the Winter of 2017, with a batch of songs and their instruments packed into a van. Finding an apartment and a studio in close proximity they hit a purple patch of writing and gigging. The vibrant city and people found it’s way into their sound and performances. Sharing stages with Hilary Woods, Steve Gunn, Half Waif, Conor O’Brien and being selected for the Irish Music Week industry showcase both last year and this year, they played over 50 shows including a showcase at the Irish Embassy in Berlin. This journey led them to acclaimed producer Julie McLarnon (Jeffery Lewis/Lankum/The Vaselines/Bridget Mae Power) with whom they recorded earlier this year.

Double A-Side “Chain of Coral / Feelings of Plenty” marked the first release from Perlee last October. Stereogum had the following to say:

"The duo’s melody weaves in and out of focus initially, like tips of flames moving in unpredictable yet still natural arcs. The song becomes entrancing ..., drawing you in with one flare, one faded hook, before encouraging you to get lost in its currents. It’s a sighing, beautiful composition." - Ryan Leas, Stereogum.

Their four-track EP 'Slow Creature' comes out March 2020 on Greenbay Records.
