Northern Irishman Pat Dam Smyth has, like so many artists before him, felt the creative
pull of Berlin and written music about it. Goodbye Berlin is a 10” EP of song-focused
rock music, with a cleaner, brighter, fuller sound than Pat’s previous lo-fi work and
a particularly welcome bit of brass in the band.
