Line-up /EUGENE MCGUINNESS
Rockfeedback Concerts presents...
Equally primal and playful, swaggering yet soulful, anthemic but sonically experimental, ‘The Invitation To The Voyage’ is the second full-length album from Eugene McGuinness and his most powerfully conceived and fully realised artistic statement to date. Recorded with the dual assistance of producers Clive Langer (Elvis Costello, Morrissey, Madness) and Dan Carey (MIA, Hot Chip, Santigold) The Invitation is an unabashedly bombastic, brave and above all, thoroughly contemporary update on a distinctly English strand of lyrical, gently fantastical pop songwriting that locates and celebrates the beautiful and the bizarre in modern life.
More emotionally focused and musically muscular than its predecessors (2007's The Early Learnings of Eugene McGuinness mini-album and the following year's debut eponymous full length), The Invitation retains the wild, almost hallucinatory vision and acid humour of Eugene's first work but boasts a new-found emotional focus and command of universal sentiment. It's a subtle change that marks this record out as a genuinely powerful pop album and confirmsEugeneas one of the most stylistically distinctive and uniquely insightful writers of the present day.
