West Cork Duo Les SalAmandas Share New Single ‘Gold (Fall With The Gun)’

April 7, 2022

Les SalAmandas are a new singing song-writing act in the Irish music scene, Julie O’Sullivan (Ballydehob, West Cork) and Colyne Laverriere (Hostun, France).

Julie and Colyne met in late 2018 in Ballydehob West Cork, Ireland. Les SalAmandas made their live debut at Levis Corner House, an award-winning Irish venue, as part of  ‘Secret Song Festival’ (2019). On 1st September 2020, they performed at a sold-out gig in Levis Corner House and revealed a maturity of song-writing well beyond their years. Immersing themselves in the cultural centre that is West Cork, Julie and Colyne spent the last two years writing and recording their own material together and collaborating with local and national musicians.

Over the last two years, Julie and Colyne have had the opportunity of playing in many of Ireland’s wonderful venues and first-class festivals all over the country. Playing at Connolly’s of Leap, Lost Lane, Dublin, Whelan’s, Dublin, Waterfords’ Summer In The City, Coughlans Live Promotion’s The Great Beyond, and Other Voices Dingle. During this time they met and played alongside some of Ireland’s greatest talents; Mick Flannery, Clare Sands, Dani Larkin, Wallis Bird, Molly O’Mahony, Paul Dunlea, and many more.

These experiences inspired and moulded what Les SalAmandas became and the steps they followed to share their art with the world. In September 2021 Les SalAmandas launched a very successful crowd-funding campaign that funded the recording, mastering, and replication of their debut album that they are now putting the final touches on, which was co-produced by award-winning Canadian producer Daniel Ledwell.

In March 2022 Les SalAmandas’ first two singles ‘Now Is The Time’ and ‘Mouldy’ were both featured in ITV’s new series ‘Holding’ which was shot in West Cork in 2021. They are now ready to release ‘Gold (Fall With The Gun)’ their next single from their debut album.

Following ‘Mouldy’ which was released in September 2021, Gold (Fall With The Gun) moves away from heartbreak-pop and follows a more neo-folk/rock style, similar to their debut single ‘Now Is The Time’, Gold (Fall With The Gun) speaks a coming-of-age story-telling experience.

Using their unique style of singing, Les SalAmandas express the feelings of growing up and finding one’s place in the world from a female perspective, with subtle additions of harmonies throughout the song.

‘GOLD (Fall with the Gun), the new single Les SalAmandas is out on streaming services now
