Donegan is an eponymous family band: songwriter Thomas sings and plays piano, organ, guitars and synths, with Emmet on guitar, mandolin and vocals and Martin on percussion. The new album and its singles prosper from collaboration with renowned producer Chris Coulter, who recently took Arcane Roots to no. 1 in the UK Indie charts.
The band intend 1st XI to be a true “concept album” – with 11 strong tracks that, taken as a whole, tell a coherent story and bring the listener on a journey – or which will resound at different times in a person’s life, depending on where they sit on the “relationship curve” depicted on the album’s reverse cover. 1st XI was released online and available for sales of the physical CD at retailers on 27 March 2018.
“With a wealth of musical variety and an engaging narrative journey, Donegan’s full-length debut is replete with varied and adventurous instrumentation” – VENTS Magazine”
“Each track provides a musically solid chapter that embeds its own unique thematic style and conceived composition via a truly thought-out and original project. Imagine songwriters given a chance to write a script. And, while each song is solid on its own footing, Donegan show that, as a concept, songs are like family: they are stronger when they are together.” – Jammerzine
