Seamus Fogarty – Short Ballad For a Long Man (2017)

Domino are pleased to announce their latest signing, Irish alt-folk and electronica alchemist Seamus Fogarty. To celebrate the occasion, Seamus has shared the video for brand new song ‘Short Ballad For A Long Man’.

Originally from County Mayo on the west coast of Ireland, Fogarty now resides in London. His previous releases include debut full-length album God Damn You Mountain (Fence/Lost Map) and 2015’s EP Ducks and Drakes.

Produced by Fogarty and Leo Abrahams (Brian Eno, Wild Beasts), ‘Short Ballad For A Long Man’ is a lament for the 250-year-old skeleton of giant Irishman Charles Byrne displayed in The Hunterian Museum in London. Opening with lush strings and clarinets ‘Short Ballad For A Long Man’ gives way to subtle synth tones and droning Hammond organs, giving the listener a taste of Fogarty’s meticulous approach to his craft.

Directed by Kieran Evans
Produced by CC Lab
