As part of a promotional tour in support of his new self-produced album, The Shadow Of An Empire, the successful young singer-songwriter plays two local dates during the coming week. This latest offering is the much anticipated follow up to his Mercury Prize and Choice Music Prize nominated debut album, The End Of History. If the Irish singer’s debut was the sound of the countryside, this record is the sound of towns; heartfelt and with a louder and more ragged edge. Perhaps not surprising, as it was written whilst touring worldwide for two years, and in particular across America, and as Fionn puts it “seeing the world, the bone structure, the pulp as a writer you hold up a mirror, its reflections become the work”.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Aquarius:

A cherished dream is elusive. It will be best to change gear, at least for the immediate future. Pursue a moneymaking opportunity with creative appeal. Getting paid to exercise your imagination will lift your spirits. By the time you finish this assignment, you may be in better condition to pursue your primary goal. A brilliant idea for operating on a shoestring budget will come. At that point, nothing will stand between you and success. Stay calm and take things one step at a time.More
