Hailing from Rome and Dublin respectively, three piece London based band Semaphore released his debut in November 2008.
Pitched somewhere between the rich storytelling of Johnny Cash and the hypnotic siren-call of Spiritualized, the band’s sound is expertly held together by Brennan’s distinctive deep, dark and gravel baritone, that suggests a maturity far beyond his 24 years. Semaphore sings songs about drinking, women and everyday disillusion. Their words are peppered with imagery from nature, the Bible and even the wrong side of the bar.
Cementing their influence on the current north London music scene, Semaphore has been involved in promoting the Why? Club night at Proud Galleries in Camden and now host the monthly Stabokki! night at the Wilmington Arms. The band will be playing intensively during the summer and will start working on a second album in September 2009.
