Indicative of his raconteur nature, Conchúr’s lyrical influences include the likes of Father John Misty, Lana Del Rey, Alex Turner, and Charles Bukowski. There’s dream-like surrealism in White’s musical storytelling which he delivers with understated theatrical manner.
Hailing from the small but noteworthy town of Portadown, Northern Ireland, Conchúr previously fronted Silences who achieved notable success in Ireland. Upon parting ways last year, Conchúr felt an outpouring of creativity and ended up writing and recording ten solo demo tracks in his bedroom over the course of just one month.
Four of these tracks will form his debut EP which is anticipated for release in early 2020. ‘Daisies’ in particular had a swift progression from bedroom demo to the polished release it is today, mixed by Matt Wiggins (London Grammar, Glass Animals, Horrors).

Fresh from playing SWN (Cardiff) and Neighbourhood (Manchester) festivals in October, Conchúr will support Villagers on all Irish shows in December. Listings for all upcoming Conchúr White shows as follows.
