Tipperary’s Joe Geaney deals in the spaces between the notes. Inspired by a series of Irish artworks, Geaney’s source material is as cloudy and beautiful as his wistful electronica. He released the slow-burning ‘Creators’ last year – all melancholic vocals and piano-led clicks and glitches before a pulsating finale – and the chopped up piano and Tycho-esque surges of ‘Wish‘ soon followed.
With the latter having been picked up by Joe.ie and the former making ATL’s Track of the Day, Geaney’s latest single, ‘Wolf Call‘, is bound for even bigger things. A more upbeat offering than his previous works, the latest Floating Ballroom release employs the same androgynous vocals, albeit over a beat that carries the attitude of an instrumental hip-hop track. Perhaps tellingly, ‘Wolf Call’ was the first track that Geaney penned as Floating Ballroom, and was written over a year ago. Mercifully, he doesn’t always wait that long between new releases.
Joe worked with Lemon PR in order to boost the profile of Floating Ballroom and to increase exposure for ‘Wolf Call’. After working with Lemon PR, both parties were able to sit back and reminisce over the following:
- Wolf Call was played on BBC’s Across The Line
- Wolf Call was named by Nialler 9 as one of his Top Irish releases for the Irish Times
- Wolf Call was played several times by RTE 2FM’s Dan Hegarty
- Floating Ballroom was featured on an Inbound piece for State.ie
- Wolf Call was playlisted by John Loftus on 8Radio.com
- Wolf Call was played by The Noisy Plug on 103.2 Dublin City FM
- Wolf Call was played by The Playlist on 92.5 Phoenix FM
- Wolf Call was named on Remy as one of its best Irish independent releases
- Wolf Call featured on Acid Stag‘s ‘Sunday Chills’ playlist (alongside Four Tet, no less)
- Boosts to both Floating Ballroom’s Facebook and Twitter likes/followers.
This then led Joe to proclaiming – entirely unprompted by us – “Working with Lemon PR has been an incredibly professional and beneficial experience. Andrew is a hardworking individual who strives to get the best exposure for the artists he represents.”
