Gemma Dunleavy celebrates Sheriff St in new video for ‘Up De Flats’

Words: Dylan Murphy

In a time where connection is few and far between, ‘Up De Flats’ is a warm reminder of the power of communal spirit.

Following the release of her stunning debut EP in July Gemma Dunleavy has returned with the first visual offering from the project.

‘Up De Flats’ was directed by Rosie Barrett and serves as a love letter to the community that raised her. The video tells the story of working-class life in Sheriff St through the perspective of six different stereotypes she grew up around.

In a time where connection is few and far between, ‘Up De Flats’ is a warm reminder of the power of communal spirit.

The release of her EP was followed by 5 sold-out socially distanced shows in Dublin and Cork and a sold-out run of cassettes and merchandise. Gemma has a headline show in the Grand Social in March 2021.
