John of the Apocalypse (JotA) are singer/guitarist Patrick Hallinan and drummer/bassist Steve Dwane, both from Mayo, Ireland. While their sound can loosely be termed alt-folk, Hallinan also draws on his love of ambient and experimental sounds, weaving a mercurial web of tones, from raw and wild rockers to more complex and prayerful meditations.
Inspired by Grandaddy, Nick Cave, Wilco and Sparklehorse, the themes revolve around the human condition and the journey of transformation which is alive in the world today.
Going Coastal is broadcast on Flirt Fm, BCRFM, RosFM, Wired Fm and Dublin Digital Radio. Each week a different host talks us through some of the music that they love.
