Conchúr White / Shares Animated 'Channing Tatum' Video
Conchúr White has unveiled a delicately animated video for his brand new track, ‘Channing Tatum’. The video, by Brighton based animator Tom Denney, plays out the story of the song’s lyrics as two lovers part ways, largely because of a Channing Tatum lookalike swooping into steel the scene. Clocking in at under two minutes, the track is a glimpse at what we can expect from Conchúr’s debut EP when officially announced in the new year.
Speaking about his latest track, Conchúr shares: “Channing Tatum as you can guess is a bit tongue and cheek. It was inspired by an individual from my past who was always quite impulsive. It was that characteristic which seen them marry young and enviably divorce young. I think some people fantasise about marriage and forget the gravity of what it means. In this situation, one person understood the commitment and the other was married to the fantasy. So when they leave with "Channing Tatum", they aren't leaving their spouse for him, they're leaving their old fantasy for a new fantasy.”

Conchúr (pronounced Conor) White arrived with his official debut single, ‘Daisies’, in November. Indicative of his raconteur nature, Conchúr’s lyrical influences include the likes of Father John Misty, Lana Del Rey, Alex Turner, and Charles Bukowski. There’s a dream-like surrealism in White’s musical storytelling which he delivers with understated theatrical manner.
Hailing from Co Armagh, Northern Ireland, Conchúr previously fronted the band Silences who achieved notable success in Ireland. Upon parting ways last year, Conchúr felt an outpouring of creativity and ended up writing and recording ten solo demo tracks in his bedroom over the course of just one month.
‘Daisies’ and ‘Channing Tatum’ are two of the four tracks from this session which will form his debut EP, currently anticipated for release in early 2020. ‘Daisies’ in particular had a swift progression from bedroom demo to the polished release it is today, mixed by Matt Wiggins (London Grammar, Glass Animals, Horrors).
Fresh from playing SWN (Cardiff) and Neighbourhood (Manchester) festivals in October, Conchúr will support Villagers on all Irish shows in December and has jus been added to the lineup for Eastbound Festival in Dublin in May. Listings for all upcoming shows as follows.
