ANNOUNCE ALBUM: HUMAN RELATIONS & DOUBLE A: START AGAIN & TRAINING WHEELS – OUT MAY 17TH + Irish tour dates announced
Senakah are a four-piece band comprising of Vocalist Rob Hope, bass-player Yvonne Conaty, drummer Daragh O’Loughlin and guitarist Brendan O’Gorman. Their music blends guitar laden melodic pop with modern rock. In 2008 the band released their debut album ‘Sweeter Than Bourbon’, which garnered an impressive amount of mutual nods of approval from the music industry in both Ireland and Europe. Including two Top 30 chart single releases (Smile & Clarity), Song of the week on National radio station RTE2FM and was awarded Track of the Day on Today FM.
Syncs also came in on MTV and Various TV Dramas on RTE for songs across the entire album. It wasn’t long before they were invited over to America to do 1 tour, which became almost 300 shows! Fast gathering word of mouth endorsements for their energetic live performances, the band began to sample new songs and gauge from crowd reaction what to place on the next album.
Firm with the notion that they had built up an adequate collection of new songs, the decision became clear to return to Ireland to record the new album. With the production skills of Noel Hogan (The Cranberries) the songs came to life. Recorded over the course of twenty-seven days in the former Bishop’s Palace in Limerick, the new album ‘Human Relations’ is a confident step forward in both songwriting and recording.
As always the bands agenda is that their music brings Senakah into the hearts and minds of the people. Human Relations will be released May 17th and will mark a paramount return to form from the band.
