Sad Night Dynamite

Fri, Feb 18, 2022 @ 7:00 pm 10:30 pm

Workmans Club

Hotly-tipped UK duo Sad Night Dynamite will make their much anticipated Irish debut at The Workman’s Club on Friday, February 18th, 2022. Tickets go on sale at 9 AM Thursday, November 11th.

Equal parts light and shade, dystopia and fantasy, Sad Night Dynamite invite listeners to accept and celebrate that sense of not knowing quite where they are (in their records, or amidst the uncertainties of the world at large). But there are a few acts it’s easier to pin down. Archie and Josh are a duo whose formative, somewhat feral upbringing near Glastonbury saw them first meet at school, but start Sad Night Dynamite whilst separated at university. Cut and pasting Logic files over email, something stuck with the experimental epic ‘Icy Violence’, which introduced the boys’ incredible way with production: today, influences range from Tyler, The Creator, The Specials and Outkast to lyrics laced with a distorted, fairground-mirror way with storytelling. “Sad Night Dynamite,” Archie concludes, “is a bizarre fantasy built on real experiences.” Wherever the truth lies, embracing modern chaos has catapulted Sad Night Dynamite into the UK’s most essential new duo. “Our music is a hybrid of the best and worst parts of each of us,” Josh decides. “Which is a shame, really,” Archie adds, “because if you just took good parts of each of us you might come up with one quite decent person.”
