    Empathy in G Minor
After nearly 10 years working on other people’s projects, former Headgear frontman Daragh Dukes returns as Asylum Speakers.
Described as halfway between Leonard Cohen and Leonard Nimoy, the album Omphalos is due in October.
Don’t be surprised if you can hear a kaleidoscope of influences glittering from the 'Empathy in G minor' four-track EP. “My attitude is I've always wanted to use as much as possible of what I've liked and heard. I like to play with it, bend it around and put it through my own filter and get a song that way. This approach stops me settling into any genre or style, as I feel connected equally to so many of them, so it makes sense that my music should always fall between genres, or at least invite them all to part-take.”
