If there's one thing that brings Dublin to life, it's music. The music scene in Dublin has always been so vibrant and innovative and we're delighted to bring you an exclusive from Storyfold featuring Dublin and Dubliners. You might have caught their fantastic set at Electric Picnic or heard them on the radio but this video is sure to bring a smile to your face.
In their own words: 'The Lost And The Lonely’ is a song inspired by Dublin, written and recorded in Dublin, so we wanted to celebrate the city and its people in the video.
On one beautiful September morning last week, we walked the South Circular Road and every person we met, we asked could we film for a few moments. What we were looking for was a snapshot of the city – a day in the life of Dublin. What we got was an incredible collection of people and the song actually became the soundtrack to their day.'
We started at Kilmainham Jail, past IMMA, Rialto, Dolphin’s Barn, the old John Player factory, the boxing stadium, the Dublin Mosque, three Catholic churches, Polish shops, Lithuanian shops, African shops, Griffith College, many restaurants, pharmacies, hairdressers, cafés, butchers and grocery stores. To all those people who live there, walk the road and make it what it is, thank you.
*Storyfold release their new album ‘It’s Later Than You Think’ next Friday and headline Button Factory Dublin on the same night. Tickets on sale now from usual outlets.
