Sinead O’Brien has announced her debut EP Drowning In Blessings for release in the summer, produced by Speedy Wunderground supremo Dan Carey.
The EP follows previous singles such as Taking On Time and A Thing You Call Joy – one of Live4ever’s top tracks of 2019 – and will include the more recent Fall With Me and the brand new track which has been unveiled today, Roman Ruins.
“Written while living in the mansion with fifty people in Hampstead; a sudden realisation occurred,” O’Brien says. “It allowed me to see in the brutal light of day. The illusion was collapsed. Exploded. Statues, monuments, clay and ancient structures emerged. A hidden city. The city wants to stay hidden. This is the blind spot.”
“All four of my bedroom walls faced a different room or hallway. It was set up like a boxing ring. I could hear multiple narratives, coming from all directions even in my sleep. There were ‘episodes’ reeling in my mind through the night and into morning. The relentless sounds, conversations. Images from the lyrics are also heard in the musical arrangement.”
