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”.

Horoscopes

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Virgo:

A close relationship could reach a rocky patch. Resist the urge to emotionally withdraw from your loved one. Be willing to address the issues that have been pulling you apart. You could hear some painful things about your behaviour. Instead of getting defensive, be open to changing for the sake of your relationship. Think back to a time when someone you loved worked hard to gain your affection and approval. Pattern your attitude after theirs. Being flexible is more important than being right.More
