Pierce Brothers Announce Headline Show At Whelans For 2021

Having supported Tash Sultana last year, Pierce Brothers have announced their return to Dublin. They will play Whelans 20th January 2021. This follows the news of their new single ‘’Kanko’.

A mellow acoustic, harmony-based single with a driving beat, ‘Kanko’ calls to a freedom found in the mountain air, reminiscing on that free feeling and remembering it will come again after this time of isolation.

Pierce Brothers have also released a clip that throws back to their extensive time on the road travelling, together with performances filmed in isolation at their homes.

Pierce Brothers - 'Kanko' [Official Video]

For fans of the chilled folk vibes or Angus and Julia Stone, Ziggy Alberts and Garrett Kato, Kanko is a smooth, beat driven track that calls out to easier times to come. The first release from Pierce Brothers since 2018, ‘Kanko’ recalls heavily back to their acoustic roots beginning with two acoustic guitars; something that they really wanted to reach for again.

“The song is about holding on and knowing that those times will come again so we used the footage from tours we’ve done over the last few years, and filmed new stuff in our little home studio, with a cast and crew of just the two of us. I think it reinforces that feeling, that we will get through all this, that this isolation won’t be forever, and we can always make do!”

Tickets €15.00 on sale this Friday at 9AM and will be available here.
