The Psychological Enhancement
Rumblings from the ground. A deep vibration paired with escalating ambience, you could feel it coming… Creatures from the depths of Dublin came to rise upon our mountain side location…
Species 2016 was captivated by the powerful live performance from the experimental Industrial ‘supergroup’ The Psychological Enhancement featuring Graham Dunne lead singer songwriter who is also on guitars and production, in the company of Niall Condon guitarist/e-Bow player & instrumental Songwriter.
On this their debut performance, we were as proud, as we were intrigued by the sheer quality of sound and potent stage presence of these two Dubliners whose music explores the human condition and the contemporary mind. Unstinting in provocative themes surrounding the perceptions of individuals psyche’s effected by certain things, including social trends, the prevailing mass-media and an ever growing spectrum of mental disorders. With Influences in the vein of Nine Inch Nails, SWANS, Throbbing Gristle, Coil, Tool, Aphex Twin and Skinny Puppy, The Psychological Enhancement create a unique and compelling combination of fresh sound and insight into a world of chaotic minds.
We look forward to hearing more from these Species newcomers in the not too distant future.
