Showcasing her new critically acclaimed album ‘Rebound’, American singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Eleanor Friedberger travels to Dublin for an intimate solo show in The Grand Social. Friedberger – who is also one half of the indie rock duo The Fiery Furnaces – has broadened her musical palette on her brilliant new record and this show is a must see for fans of intelligent, alt pop music.
On Rebound, Eleanor Friedberger has created a subtle world that is a little fizzier, a little synthier – more cinematic, more meditative – than her previous three albums. In the wake of 2016’s jarring political shift, Friedberger felt a need to be even more self-reliant, right down to the album artwork, in which she painted a backdrop and styled herself as an attempt to look like an amped up Lizzy Mercier Descloux.
In contrast to the sonic serenity of 2016’s New View, which she arranged and recorded with her touring band, Rebound was recorded mostly on her own and with the producer Clemens Knieper. Programmed drums, a Juno synthesizer, and muted rhythm guitars dominate the landscape where influences range from Stereolab and Suicide to Lena Platonos and Yellow Magic Orchestra.
