Local performance art duo Farmer Darkness’ debut Release, titled ‘CD’ is out now in Classified Records. 

Members Méabh Breathnach and Emer McGinnity have been making video and performance art together for two years.

The pair of best pals have supported local punk performers such as The Periods and Alice Robinson, which has allowed them to develop their unique brand of "sad girl absurdity-pop".

The band say their key influences include The Twisted Sisters, Chastity Belt, ABBA and local act Jinx Lennon.

Their multi-media practice is informed by their professional backgrounds in Sculpture & Environmental Art and Speech & Language Therapy as well as their playful engagement with contemporary culture.

The local ladies explore themes such as neo-capitalism, identity politics and the narcissism of modern relationships in their work. 

Farmer Darkness combine a DIY-punk ethos with a sharp sense of humour to distinguish them as one of the most exciting up-and-coming acts in Dundalk. 

Pick up their debut release 'CD' in Classified Records now for €5.
