After playing in London, The Clockworks were back supporting Yungblud aka; Dominic Harrison in Whelan's.
Hailing from Doncaster, Yungblud dropped out of school at 16 beginning his music career in London. His singles began attracting popularity in 2017 when his style was described as "the spitfire suburban poetry of younger Arctic Monkeys and Jamie T, fused with a healthy touch of ska and hip-hop spirit". Yungblud collaborated with Charlotte Lawrence for the song "Falling Skies", which is featured on the season two soundtrack of 13 Reasons Why.
Yungblud has expressed himself through his music as a "socially conscious artist unafraid of delivering genre-bending protest songs." His song "I Love You, Will You Marry Me" describes the true story of a man named Jason who proposed to a woman named Clare Middleton through graffiti on Park Hill that ended up being heavily commercialized and profited by apartment owners, but the woman died, and the man became homeless.
Whelan's was his first visit to Ireland and he didn't disappoint putting on a show of raw energy and tremors moving through the floor. Be sure to catch him on his next visit, one act that shouldn't be missed.
