Unveiling "Dancer" with a New Track and an Audio-Visual Extravaganza
Berlin and Antwerp-based audio-visual artists David Anthony Curley and Joe Furlong, known collectively as The Cope, have captivated the indie music scene over the past year with their electrifying singles and a self-titled EP. Now, they're set to elevate their artistry with the release of their debut album, “Dancer,” scheduled for December 8th, 2023.

“Dancer” represents the culmination of an 18-month creative sojourn, stretching from mid-2020 to 2021, at The Clinic Recording Studios in Dublin. The Cope's DIY ethos shines through in their hands-on approach to the album's production, complemented by James Eager's mixing finesse and Stuart Hawkes' mastering expertise at Metropolis Studios, London.
This album also features an ensemble of talented vocalists, including Miche Moreno, Shiv, Sorcha Richardson, Ciara O’Connor, and Theodora Byrne, adding layers of depth and texture to The Cope's sound.
