Levis Cornerhouse welcomes The Lost Gecko a band hailing from Cork, Ireland, formed in 2006 by Scottish-born singer-songwriter Malcolm Urquhart. Having recorded 9 EPs, with cellist Elaine McCarthy and percussionist John O’Connor, The Lost Gecko have released a new album, ‘Solasta’, meaning ‘Luminous’ in Scots-Gael. Between Malcolm’s soaring vocals, intense lyrics, vibrant guitar playing, Elaine’s emotive cello lines and John’s atmospheric and enriching use of percussion, The Lost Gecko’s music is outside the box; an intricate weaving of sound, melody and rhythms with spontaneous bursts of exploratory improvisation.
