Dublin-based Wexford man Niall Colfer's glossy lo-fi
debut album "Finds" was gently placed into
the consciousness of the music loving public with an astonishing "word-of-mouth"

Niall’s first solo project after fronting
the critically acclaimed Wexford band SALTHOUSE.
Recorded and produced over the last year in Sun Studios with additional
production by Gareth Mannix, Finds is Niall’s
first solo album. Playing many of the instruments on these new tracks
himself, Niall has honed a distinctive style; a hushed confidence
of melody and groove, inside disco, rock and sometimes even folk.
Not afraid to admit where his inspiration comes from, he says it’s
everything from love, loss, and the history of life. You’ll
find street scenes in one song, ancient maps in another.
Niall’s songs come
across as honest explorations of everyday feelings without the smaltz.
He hits a characteristic groove in each song, which just continues
on through, hooking you in. Together, the songs leave an impression
of subtlety, individualism and toe-tapping rhythm, with lyrics that
creep on up and get you thinking.
