Rachael Dadd | Future Yard

Coinciding with the release of her new album, wildly creative free-form songwriter Rachael Dadd stops by Future Yard this autumn for what we’re sure will be a spellbinding show. Dadd releases her new LP Kaleidoscope in October, her second for Memphis Industries, which extends on the critical acclaim and bold folk experimentalism of 2019’s FLUX. Support on the night comes from Sara Wolff and Samya O’Grady.
Tickets on sale now.

On 14 October 2022, Rachael Dadd is to release her brand new studio album Kaleidoscope. The record is her second album for Memphis Industries and follows 2019’s Flux, which was released to much acclaim and which she was touring when the pandemic struck.

Like so many people disconnected from their communities and struggling through the lockdowns, Rachael Dadd turned inwards, seeking escape through music and connection through songwriting, and her hope is that when people listen to Kaleidoscope “they will feel held and find space to breathe, grieve and celebrate.”

Following on from taking part in the Super Cool Drawing Machine touring art exhibition which raised money for small venues during lockdown, Rachael developed the album artwork by embroidering on her sewing machine. She created colourful geometric organisms, possibly depicting the patterns of a kaleidoscope, or musical sounds spread across a huge blue sky.

Sara Wolff

Rachael Dadd

Weaving together words, intimate guitar chords, choral harmonies and sometimes loud distortion, Sara Wolff creates songs that are playful, intimate and brutally honest.She released her debut EP, When you Left The Room, in 2021 – 5 tracks about fraying relationships and botched social interactions, recalling the off-kilter approach of Fiona Apple and Cate Le Bon. With continuous support from local promoters, Sara has shared stages with artists like Fenne Lily, Helado Negro and Peter Broderick, with her music broadcast on BBC 6, Amazing Radio and Radio Ireland.

"The ethereal synths fade into her tender vocal timber with seamless ease creating a cohesive soundscape for the observational lyrics. Coming from Liverpool with tinges of Norwegian cool, Sara Wolff composes elaborate songs between alt-folk and bedroom synth pop." - Nothing But Hope And Passion
