Permanent Déjà Vu
Dundalk, County Louth
With a lyrical depth and melodic appeal rooted in classic song writing sensibilities, Permanent Déjà Vu’s deft and unhinged musical chops push their songs in a thoroughly modern, explosively engaging and emotionally affecting direction.
The band’s aptly titled debut ‘Cinematic Love’ was released in the summer of 2011. Highbrowse.ie called it a ‘brilliant album’ and ‘an amazingly experimental and inventive debut’ (read the full review here http://highbrowse.ie/music/reviews/cinematiclove.html)
Hot Press praised its vast cinematic arrangements and classic song writing credentials going so far as to pick one of the tracks for the final of an international song writing competition headed by music website Emeraz. American based film makers ‘Foto Safari’ heard the album and immediately contacted the band requesting the use of one of its songs in an upcoming short film.
The band’s second album ‘Palace in Flames’ is currently awaiting summer release. The new album brings the band’s light/dark aesthetic to new heights combining intimate, evocative torch songs with unadorned rockers of stirring passion. Permanent Déjà Vu is an equally rousing and successful live act who is not to be missed.
