The West Barn Friday 24th April,
Out back in the West Barn,
at the White House,
Gar Cox,

"Support Your Local Bookshop"
The new EP release by Dublin-based singer-songwriter Gar Cox, available as a download from iTunes and all other digital outlets from April 10.  

The EP showcases four new songs that demonstrate the range of Gar's songwriting. 
The lead track, "Hospitals and Airports",
is a tender song written during a spell in the A&E department of St. John's Hospital, Dublin.  Based on Gar's experiences travelling in Europe,
"Kiss the Sky" is a humorous and unashamed celebration of gay identity. 

The title track, which runs under two minutes, is a freewheeling acoustic-punk ode to the power of reading, while the EP's final track, "O What Is That Sound", is an atmospheric reading of a 1936 poem by W. H. Auden.
