Princ€ss is a new Irish supergroup. Their music exists at the limits of rock, chamber, traditional and experimental music, with an ensemble approach to songwriting and performance. Their self-titled debut album was released in March on Dublin label wherethetimegoes, to widespread acclaim. Their debut Scottish show will unfold at the Hug and Pint on the 30th of June, with support from Edinburgh’s spinney.

Boomkat: Bit of a special one this; described as an avant-pop supergroup involving “serious legends”, Princ€ss land a strong debut album of modified shoegaze x ambient chamber musick slotted somewhere between Hysterical Love Project, Kevin Shields, A.R. Kane and Astrid Sonne, and tipped if yr on the spectrum between any of those trip/dream-pop integers. A perfect soundtrack to crawling out of hibernation for spring, consider us fully hooked.

Pitchfork: It’s hard to pin down much about Princ€ss, but their music speaks to a sense of absence. As a “band,” they seem to lie at the very edge of whatever the term might mean these days. Guitars bleed into plastic loops, songs disintegrate into formless electronic dust, and traditional instruments are subsumed into a wall of hypnotic feedback. Princ€ss’ debut asks a lot of questions, but in refusing to answer any of them, they instead leave us floating, unresolved, and in between.
