Our Krypton Son aka Chris McConaghy returns with his beautiful second album Fleas & Diamonds. McConaghy is a songwriter with uncanny ability to capture elemental human truths as perfectly formed, dream-pop gems. Lush, sweeping arrangements are his trademark sound – on this latest collection he has adorned that landscape with strings and synths to sumptuous effect.

Fleas & Diamonds is a cathartic experience for both listener and singer. Across its 46 minutes and 47 seconds are moments of profound beauty, honesty and truth. Like most of Chris’ material – we’re made to feel as though the songs were written for us alone.

The album will be launched in the Nerve Centre's newly refurbished event space on March 10, with support from Conor Mason and PORTS. For more details visit the Nerve Centre website.
