about

Conor O' Malley’s sublime new album “Dreamland Arcades” traces a path from the dark streets of his Dublin hometown to the neon lights and faded glories of English seaside towns. “Dreamland Arcades” is melting pot of melancholia and elation, isolation and warmth, a glance at the past and a glimpse at an uncertain future. It blends cultural elements from his Irish adolescence, via his experiences living in the USA where his psyche was marinated in Americana, to his current adopted home on the Essex coast.

Treading the hallowed path in the tradition of great songwriting, formative touchstones Morrisey, Neil Young, Bob Dylan and Tom Waits pointed the way forward, giving Conor the wherewithal to carve his particular sound. The reception to recent intimate gigs and a live session on Dublin’s hallowed 98FM have shown that Conor O’Malley’s timeless style has started to find a permanent home in people’s hearts.

Track Name: Last Train from London
All along the coast you know I like it here the most
you can see the seasons changing as they fly
here inside the dark feels like something in your heart
that whispers time it waits for no man so live on...

We were standing on the corner wondering how we ever got here
London streets were lost and dark inside the rain
all this reminiscing realised that I was missing
when I looked up and I saw the time again..

and then I heard you say you’ll make that 1:09
I’ve got my ticket heading straight down to the line
I looked outside and then I dreamt of you...

All these people through the windows
what a million things could they do
reaching out across the wires
to the satellite on the midnight hours..

and then the man said all you can do is try
were just another generation cast aside
I looked outside and then I dreamt of you..

On the Last train from London I can see the lights of home
On the last train from London till this loneliness is gone
On the last train from London I can hear that river song
in my head rolling me along.....
