First Pope Performs For OAW

For OAW #2 we let our Irish correspondent First Pope into an East Didsbury pub against the wishes of management and patrons alike - armed only with a guitar and a quiff of hair so high even Conan O’Brien would exclaim in wonder.
With his ‘I just woke up like this’ charm and Emerald Isle falsetto, First Pope performs original track ‘In the Dark’ and a cover of Miike Snow’s ‘Animal’. There are also some pretty progressive bus sounds in there.
This one’s for the lovers of Ronan Keating and/or Ezra from Vampire Weekend, depending on how much you squint. 
Original: In The Dark

Cover: Animal (Miike Snow)
