"Brimming with infectious and irresistible songs that instantly bury themselves in your head, pushing their melodic roots all the way into your brain and effortlessly flourishing." (AlternativeUlster)Fiercely independent, female-fronted Irish indie trio I Am Not Lefthanded are known for their lyrical, evocative songs and quirky homemade videos. Playing uplifting, cinematic indie music, they've been described as sounding like ‘Natalie Merchant fronting Death Cab for Cutie'.After 2 EP releases, Yes Means No and Time To Leave, earned them effusive praise online and in print, the band toured extensively across Ireland and the UK. Their intimate songwriting, focused energy and stirring harmonies brought invitations to tour with bands such as Duke Special and The Rumble Strips. After they made their first visit to the US, with a 15-date tour across 10 states, the reaction from audiences there led them to make a permanent move to warmer climes, settling in San Francisco.Recent career highlights included headlining a stage at Liverpool's Sound City Festival and hosting a charity show at London's Bush Hall. The band's music has been placed in a number of TV shows and indie films - including a global ad campaign for P&G and ABC's teen drama Ravenswood. They also recently played their first Canadian shows at Toronto's IndieWeek and North by NorthEast Music Festivals.Fully embracing the joys and perils of the internet, the band recently completed a partnership with fan-funding website SliceThePie.com to raise $11,000 to make their first full-length album. They spent a year holed up in a country cottage, writing, re-writing and recording. The new album, The Fire & The Sigh is deeper in scope than previous releases - more time was spent crafting the songs in a studio space rather than simply recreating the live sound of the band, with Kathryn's lyrics exploring themes of loneliness, distance and hope for an imminent return.
