Patrick Kelleher and his Cold Dead Hands
Dublin, County Dublin
"Spookily brilliant, like Daryl Hall in hell" - The Guardian
Patrick Kelleher & His Cold Dead Hands are a five piece band from Dublin, Ireland. Their critically acclaimed album 'You Look Cold' was released on Osaka Recordings in 2009. A remix album followed in 2010 called 'You Look Colder'. It featured remixes from the likes of Jape, Hunter-Gatherer and Legion of Two.
Their second album 'Golden Syrup' is released on 12th September. Moving on from the previous more DIY / lo-fi sound we now find them embracing a more gothic synth sound. Reminiscent of lesser known early 80's electronics pioneers such as Robert Rental, Thomas Leer and John Foxx but also drawing comparisons to such contemporary artists as Ariel Pink's Haunted Graffiti and John Maus.
