SELK (Anna Jordan and Dennis Cassidy) formed in 2012 with the intention of creating a stripped back vocal and drum ensemble, and have been garnering much attention on the back of their live performances, but with long-player Beast under the SELK moniker, a creative identity to be reckoned with has been copper-fastened. With Cassidy the anchor man and drummer of Dublin’s jazz and hip-hop collective Mixtapes from the Underground, Jordan a unique vocalist and composer, and the recent addition of guitarist Barry Brady and Bassist Dave Redmond, the results are apart from much of what you’ll hear elsewhere in the country at the moment.
"Drawing from a broad sonic palette SELK’s raw, unshackled songs possess an inherent power which prove mesmerising in a live environment"
Hotpress Gig Review, 2016
" …an atmospheric, evocative, and at times, sinister collection. 'Beast' is well worth grappling with."
Hotpress Album Review, 2016
" …a moody and expansive work that melds indie-pop choruses with bold soundscapes and intricate production"
