Plutonic Dust are a live, Electronic/House act last spotted setting Electric Picnic 2015 alight on the Body and Soul Main Stage.
Riding this momentum, the band are kicking things up a notch, turning their act from musical performance to truly immersive spectacle, and aiming to deliver a complete show for their loyal following that exceeds all expectations; rippling through the blood, pulsing in the bone marrow and resonating at the body’s core. Plutonic Dust’s unique sound comes from the fusion of the somatic rhythms and cinematic disco synth of composers Patrick McAdam and Kevin McKnight with the accessible vocals and effortlessly cool allure of front-woman and lyricist Veronica Moran. Electric guitarist Ciaran O’Shea brings the funk and percussionist John Tyrrell rounds out the outfit with all the colours and textures of live and electronic percussion.
The result is a blend of attitude and abstraction that is as trippy as it is earthily dark, as simply sincere as it is shimmeringly glam, and that demands to be experienced live. The band’s ability to voice the frustrations of the millennial children of recession, while offering them glorious sonic escape, has been called an Irish answer to the Manchester underground movement of 1996, or Studio 54 itself. The delirious Zeitgeist of Generation Bad Cheques is here, and Plutonic Dust are ready to go nuclear. You have been warned.
