Pat Dam Smyth announces new single 'Where The Light Goes'
For music lovers and musicians alike in his native Ireland, Pat Dam Smyth has been, in recent years, a trick of the light, a sleight of hand. Immortalised in the songs of other local success stories, most notably in Ciaran Lavery’s Little More Time, Pat released his debut record 'The Great Divide' to universal critical acclaim in 2012 and then seemingly vanished. Except that he didn’t; he played across Europe, moved to Liverpool and finally to London where he plunged his fists into the stomach of the black hole and came out the other side dripping in dark matter.
'Where The Light Goes' is the first track to be taken from his forthcoming album The Last King (July 2019). With a record deal freshly inked with Lyndon Stephens’ Belfast institution Quiet Arch Records (Ryan Vail, Joshua Burnside, Ciaran Lavery) the track will be released on Friday 22 February to co-incide with a slot at Northern Irish showcase festival Output alongside a run of radio promo as he announces his return to the music scene with this first live appearance in Belfast for two years.
