Awake But Always Dreaming
My Own Pleasure
This is an exquisite album of two halves: vibrant colour in the early stages contrasted with esoteric, dreamscape, legato movements towards the end.
this is a record with 2 distinct perspectives on memory: the luminous & beautiful formation of memories & the devastating loss of slow, insidious damage to the mind. The bright, raw magic & joy of personal relationships are set alongside the gradual loss of her grandmother to dementia. A childhood spent in the landscape of the Irish coast inspires a sense of openness in the music but there’s also a complex, darker, percussive thrust to these songs, as adult city life intrudes &, in its own way, inspires.
