Release of new Malojian album to be marked with special performance

In Association with Northern Ireland Screen

Part of BFI Britain on Film: Coast and Sea

“A few months ago Northern Ireland Screen contacted me to see if I'd be interested in playing a gig in a coastal location, with coastal themed visuals from their Digital Film Archive to be used as a backdrop. This sounded very cool to me and the more I thought about it, I began to get really into the idea of recording some new material to go alongside it.

So, I started recording demos at home with the intention of taking them to a proper studio at some stage and turning them into an album. Lo and behold, like an ugly duckling or something, they grew and took on a life of their own and have taken me on the most incredible musical journey I've been on yet. From recording in a lighthouse to collaborating with some of my favourite musicians ever, they've become my next album. It's called LET YOUR WEIRDNESS CARRY YOU HOME and features Joey Waronker (Beck, R.E.M., Atoms For Peace, Roger Waters), Gerry Love (Teenage Fanclub), Jon Thorne (Yorkston/Thorne/Khan, Lamb) and more...' - Stevie Scullion

The release of Let Your Weirdness Carry You Home on Rollercoaster Records will be marked by a special performance at Portico, with the beautiful venue – situated on the edge of Strangford Lough – and complementary visuals from the Digital Film Archive echoing the themes of coast, sea and maritime life that helped inform the album’s creation.
