Nick Carswell and the Elective Orchestra in Dolan's tonight

HIGHLY rated local band Nick Carswell and the Elective Orchestra are gearing up for a national tour this August, one which will see the band play six towns in seven days.
The Elective Orchestra’s ‘Great Southern Tour’ will begin Upstairs in Dolan’s this Tuesday evening, before the band decamp to DeBarra's Clonakilty, Phil Grimes Waterford, Gallery 126 Youghal, Kilkenny Arts Festival and Wexford Song Club.
To celebrate the tour, the band will also be releasing the single Oceanview as a digital download from downloadmusic.ie.
“The release of the single will make this the Great Southern Oceanview Tour,” laughed Nick, well known local musician and Spin South West DJ.
“We are planning to release our debut album later in the year and this will be our second single release, so we thought we would travel around and try and spread the word a bit,” he explained. The soft acoustic nature of Oceanview is a long-time favourite in the band's set, and has already enjoyed national success, reaching the Top 10 in the Vodafone Bright New Sounds Competition in 2008.
It displays the subtler side of the Elective Orchestra's lush instrumentation, and the quiet musings of Nick's delicate songwriting that contrasts nicely with debut single When I'm Not Around, a much more up-tempo affair.
The tour kicks off in full in Dolan’s, Tuesday August 11. For more details see www.myspace.com/nickcarswell.
