A bold new voice from Limerick...

Limerick songwriter Sinead O'Brien has shared her new single 'A Thing You Call Joy' - tune in now.

The rising voice has a real potency to her work, linking with Chess Club Records for an incoming 10 inch vinyl release.

Set to support Pond and Whenyoung respectively on their upcoming UK shows, Sinead will also play London's Roundhouse Rising on October 26th.

Ahead of all this, Sinead O'Brien shows she is ready to move ahead with the fluid creativity of new release 'A Thing You Call Joy'.

Written alongside her live band while retaining a singular identity, there's a poetic flourish to Sinead's word play.

She offers...

“The track works out its themes by way of moving us continuously through lyrics, rhythm and narrative.”

The opening line, ‘Grip the water flowing and it falls, faster from the palms’ comes from my mother. Imagery of water gives momentum driving the narrative forward while exploring different physical landscapes: “Into the cave I keep going”, “in the hallways of the mind, in the corridors of midnight”.

Tune in now.
