About this event

The debut album of new Irish auteur Aoife Nessa Frances (pronounced Ee-fa) is

shot through with a sense of mystery - an ambiguity and disorientation that

illuminates songs with smokey luminescence.

“The album title is a result of a mishearing. Cian Nugent [Aoife’s musical

collaborator and co-producer] was telling me about childhood trips he made to

Llandudno in Wales, passing through a station called Llandudno Junction,” reveals

Frances. “Land of No Junction later became a place in itself. A liminal space - a

dark vast landscape to visit in dreams… A place of waiting where I could sit with

uncertainty and accept it. Rejecting the distinct and welcoming the uncertain and

the unknown.”

The songs traverse and inhabit this indeterminate landscape: the beginnings of

love, moments of loss, discovery, fragility and strength, all intermingle and

interact. On the eponymously titled final song Frances sings “Take me to the land

of no junction/Before it fades away/Where the roads can never cross/But go their

own way.” It is this search that lies at the heart of the album, recalling journeys

towards an ever-shifting centre - a centre that cannot hold - where maps are

constantly being rewritten.
