Seeping Into Cinemas

Seeping Into Cinemas

 Dublin, Leinster, IRL

The brainchild of Dubliner Barry O' Brien, who describes his music as folk tinged dream-pop, Seeping Into Cinemas is essentially a one man operation, with O' Brien playing everything except drums and double bass during the recording process of his debut album "100,000 Times".


Seeping Into Cinemas is the solo project of Dublin musician, Barry O’ Brien. After playing in bands on the Dublin independent scene for a number of years, Barry decided the best way to find the sound he was looking for but had yet to find, was to go it alone. So began Seeping Into Cinemas.

Initially starting with a few low key but well received gigs, Barry then focused his efforts on writing and recording. Holing up at home with a bunch of guitars, microphones and other music making devices, he began work on what would eventually become his first album.

In February 2010 he emerged briefly from recording hibernation with the self released single “Dour Hour”, then disappeared again for more writing, rewriting and recording. The months that followed were full of late nights, obsessive attention to detail, ups, downs, and finally in December 2010, completion. In January 2011, Barry called on the mixing skills of Dublin producer Stephen Shannon. Mixing went smoothly, and “100,000 Times”, the debut Seeping Into Cinemas album was finished.

Consisting of ten songs, inhabited with dreamy soundscapes and Barry’s whisper quiet voice, “100,000 Times” is a melodic and haunting homage to a world full of broken hearted misanthropes and sad souls who dream of escape.

The album was released via CD and download on June 17th 2011 through Le Cheap Équipe Records.
