“On a Jordan Run to the top’’ – Don O’Mahony (Evening Echo)
Effortlessly blending the earthy folk influences of Hozier and Mick Flannery with the anthemic heartland rock of early Killers, are Jordan Run; an exciting Irish indie collective fronted by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter, Aaron O’Sullivan.
With the release of four singles in 2019, it’s clear that Aaron is a songwriter of complete sincerity. The lushness of the verses in ‘Olivia’ give way to soulful, reflective choruses (‘She gives me peace of mind’); while the poignant vocal of ‘Change Your Mind’ (Take a second chance if you need it, I loved you from the start) showcase a dynamic singer at his most expressive. In short, Jordan Run’s music is sophisticated while remaining relatable; catchy, while keeping its cool.
This quiet intensity is a unique element of the band's live shows, which have included an appearance at the Ruby Sessions Dublin, packing out their debut Coughlans show in Cork, support slots for Ariel Posen, Cory Wong (Vulfpeck) and James Arthur, and appearances at a number of major festivals (Electric Picnic, All Together Now, and Indiependence).
Jordan Run are releasing their debut EP on the 29th of May 2020.
