‘Dream From The Deep Well’ is the new album from Brigid Mae Power set for release on 30th June on Fire Records. Today we unveil new track ‘Counting Down’ and video along with new UK September tour dates.
Charming yet mellow, ‘Counting Down’ explores those beautiful short-lived connections and moments you make on the road before having to move onto the next town.
“A brighter, warmer sound elevates Power’s own compositions and Irish traditional songs” Uncut
Recognised as a purveyor of dreamier pop with folky leanings, new album, ‘Dream From The Deep Well’, is a departure; a unique marriage of traditional stylings and very modern melodies; a breath-taking soundtrack which underpins her gorgeous vocal.
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. Filled with personal tales of offspring and grandparents, the lovelorn and the lost, it’s the essence of re-imagined folk music. It waves back at her rootsy past, daubing new colours on a much-loved canvas. It’s a new visionary beginning from a gifted songwriter.
“The Irish singer-songwriter flits between past and present; between traditional and modern forms; between the heaven in her voice and the earthbound epiphanies of her words.” Pitchfork
‘Dream From The Deep Well’ is politically primed and socially aware; a broadside for us all, this is Brigid Mae Power’s most complete album yet.
“Her haunting voice, an instrument that raises the everyday to a near-mystical realm.” The Guardian
