Supersonic 2024

One Leg One Eye is the project of Ian Lynch (founding member of Lankum) that explores submerged leylines of music and song, drawing on the raw aesthetics of black metal, noise and drone, while also being deeply imbued with a sense of Irish history and myth. 


After Lankum’s extraordinary set at Supersonic last year, we are delighted to present One Leg One Eye. Using a dark reimagining of Irish traditional instrumentation combining black metal noise and abyssal, squalid drones the performance will conjure the desolate and harrowing atmosphere inspired in part by abandoned locations in his hometown of Dublin, one in particular being an empty factory where his father had worked when he was a child. Live, Lynch’s striking vocals are underpinned by vast pillars of uilleann pipe drones, overlaid with effects and field recordings to summon a sound that is at once sombre, mysterious and ultimately transcendental. 


“The mood often feels immersive and monumental, but there is powerful intimacy, too.”  The Guardian
