Bio: Nell Mescal
Ireland’s hottest new talent Nell Mescal is sharing her new single ‘Punchline’.
“I wrote punchline in my bedroom last year about a friendship ending before it needed to and the heartbreak that comes with it” explains Nell. “It’s about trying to ‘win’ the friendship breakup by pretending it doesn’t hurt you that much, but still having that sick feeling you get in your stomach because you miss the other person”.
‘Punchline’ comes off the back of a whirlwind June which saw Nell support P!INK at Hyde Park, Florence & The Machine across Ireland as well as performing to stadium sized audiences with Dermott Kennedy. Slots at the likes of Latitude Festival, All Point East, Kendall Calling and shows with The Last Dinner Party are all to follow, before Nell and her band head back on tour for her newly announced headline run across the UK & Ireland this Autumn. Tickets for her 12-date tour are on general sale from today here [add link] and all shows listed below.
With only a clutch of releases so far, Nell’s rise has been formidable, drawing on her childhood, relationships, Irish roots and her family as big inspirations for her songwriting. Her releases so far have received a groundswell of support from the likes of i-D, The New York Times, Cosmopolitan, DIY, The Line Of Best Fit and many more who have all shone a light on the 20 year old. Nell has aslo been tipped as one to watch this year by The Times, NME, Rolling Stone, Dork Magazine, Gigwise, Hot Press & Irish Times.
