Fyfe Dangerfield’s Dates In Belfast And Dublin

Guillemots Frontman Fyfe Dangerfield Headlines the Speakeasy in Belfast on Saturday 2nd October and The Academy in Dublin on Sunday 3rd October.Following Guillemots 2008 album ‘Red’, mercurial singer-songwriter Fyfe Dangerfield used the window of time created to spread his wings and lovingly record his beautiful debut solo album ‘Fly Yellow Moon’.

‘Fly Yellow Moon’ is written entirely by Fyfe and produced by Adam Noble in Urchin Studios, London – the same studios where Guillemots recorded their first classic E.P. ‘I Saw Such Things In My Sleep’.
The 10-track record startles from start to finish, magnificently eclectic, warm and uplifting, haunting and melodic – it sounds like a classic upon its first listen.

Opening track ‘When You Walk In The Room’ strikes the perfect chord for the following nine sublime tracks, capturing Fyfe’s truly remarkable voice, while flaunting his daring, expansive and mystical songwriting.

The record flows with highlights including from the beautiful ‘So Brand New’, the joyous ‘Faster Than The Setting Sun’ to the scintillating ‘She Needs Me’ and the stunningly reflective ‘Don’t Be Shy’.

Fyfe recorded the album in five days in what he describes as ‘the best ever little studio’, which ended up being the happiest days he has ever spent in studio land.

The songs were written over a 12-month period in snatched moments after soundchecks, before nights out, and after moments of unmitigated lovestruck bliss.

He met up with Bernard Butler to mix a couple of songs (‘She Needs Me’, ‘Faster Than The Setting Sun’) on a 1960s-mixing desk to colour the record in a different shade.

The rest of the tracks remained just as they were from their first recording session. “It often sounded best this way, says Fyfe. “Capturing the moment they were recorded and not being painted over too much.”
