A mane of curly locks, a hilarious sense of humour, a lilting Irish brogue, Shiny Joe Ryan is a bit of an enigma.
His musical offerings are as unique as he is – a mix of genres encompassing country, pop and rock, all mangled and mashed into something new, strange and tender. The result, after incubating inside the eccentric mass of hair and ideas that is the noggin of Joe, is The Cosmic Microwave Background.
Now, The POND multi-instrumentalist’s new album, Shiny’s Democracy, will be his first in seven years when it arrives on July 23rd. He presents the whimsical new single ‘Ketamine’ alongside the droll visual accompaniment.
