Aoife Nessa Frances – Protector, Dinked Edition

Dinked 209 is the sophomore album from Irish singer-songwriter Aoife Nessa Frances. First entrancing us with her 2020 debut, Land of No Junction, Aoife Nessa Frances makes beguilingly beautiful indie-folk with a strong sense of home. Inspired by a move out of Dublin in the spring of 2020, Frances began to work on new material, finding the move to be both personally and artistically transformational. The result is an album of beautiful restraint and subtlety, with gentle electronics and shimmering guitars complimenting lyrics which contemplate familial bonds, alienation and drifting friendships. Instrumental contributions come from Conor O’Brien (Villagers), Ailbhe Nic Oiroictaigh and Meabh McKenna, filling out a pastoral sonic landscape. Protector is released on October 28th by Partisan Records.

The Dinked Edition of Protector is on 600 limited white and blue marble splatter LP with an exclusive double sided photo print and postcard.
