Dream From The Deep Well is the new album from Brigid Mae Power set for release on 30th June on Fire Records. To celebrate new single and title track ‘Dream From The Deep Well’ is out today.
Recognised as a purveyor of dreamier pop with folky leanings, it’s a departure; a unique marriage of traditional stylings and very modern melodies; a breath-taking soundtrack which underpins her gorgeous vocal.
“It’s a deep dig, as the title track suggests. I was sick of the superficial nature of politics and music; it was written out of frustration at people who talk a lot but do nothing, especially in the sad and difficult times we’ve all just encountered.” Adds Brigid
Filled with personal tales of offspring and grandparents, the lovelorn and the lost, it’s the essence of re-imagined folk music.
In these ever-confusing and often annoying times, Brigid brings us modern folk for modern folk, with her evocative vocal, doubling back on itself with strings, steel guitar, horns and mellotron adding to its baroque loveliness. It’s waving back at her rootsy past, daubing new colours on a much-loved canvas.
It’s folk music, but not as we know it.
‘Dream From The Deep Well’ is a new visionary beginning from a gifted songwriter. It’s an album that’s politically primed and socially aware; a broadside for us all, this is Brigid Mae Power’s most complete album yet.
