Sinead O’Brien has been part of Live4ever’s Best Of series in both 2019 and 2020.

Sinead O’Brien has premiered the video for her new single Kid Stuff, directed and choreographed by Saskia Dixie.

O’Brien resumed work with producer Dan Carey for this her follow-up to last year’s Drowning In Blessings EP;

“The echo-dripped vocals on Most Modern Painting are striking alongside a clattering stop-start rhythm, a mischievous takedown of social media (‘the conditions for being are changing, who do I address?’), its fidgety and reflects the anxiety caused by the subject matter before slowing to a stop,” our review reads.

“There’s some guitar hero stuff going on beneath the surface of Roman Ruins, Hanson showcasing phased guitar with a sheen whilst O’Brien delivers a starkly cold but truthful monologue.”

“The juddering yet rigid Fall With Me allegories as much as it observes the state of the world (‘the cheapest religion is this modern condition’), while the swaying guitar and cantering beat of Strangers In Danger blends the personal experiences of city life with wider reflections on society (‘Solitary revealing moves the meaning of the streets we live on’).”
