Description

Recognised as a purveyor of dreamier pop with folky leanings, Brigid Mae Power is set to release her new album this summer. ‘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.

“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

Filled with personal tales of offspring and grandparents, the lovelorn and the lost, it’s the essence of re-imagined folk music. Modern folk for modern folk, Brigid’s evocative vocals alongside strings, steel guitar, horns and mellotron adds to the baroque loveliness whilst waving back at her rootsy past, daubing new colours on a much-loved canvas.

Brigid’s fourth album is a new visionary beginning for the gifted songwriter and her most complete album to date.

After two lauded albums for Tompkins Square, Power signed to Fire Records releasing her autobiographical, highly acclaimed album ‘Head Above The Water’ in 2020. Her last record was a coming of age opus that featured a ground-breaking amalgamation of traditional folk and country.

Skilfully interpreting songs from ‘Didn’t It Rain’ (Songs: Ohia), Aretha Franklin and Patsy Cline on her 2021 EP ‘Burning Your Light’; Brigid brings hope and reverence to classic songs that unquestionably exhibit her love of the art of song writing which is perfectly illustrated.

Politically primed and socially aware, the Irish musician has found power in her extraordinary voice and been able to embroider into a musical tapestry that’s melancholy and wonderfully consuming.

Hollow Hand

“Steeped in a sense of psych-pop and UK folk, [Hollow Hand’s] works are entrancing earworms shrouded in a sense of mystery.”

- Raven Sings The Blues

“Gentle 60s and folk-inspired indie pop. Hold onto this one for the summer. A thing of beauty” - AmericanaUK, 8/10

"The attitude of the album is definitely DIY" says Max Kinghorn-Mills of Hollow Hand's 3rd album. "About just doing everything yourself and not needing to rely on anyone. That's the one thing I love about doing this: no one has any answers for you, you are your own boss and it's YOUR OWN ADVENTURE. It's down to you.”

This independent spirit that propels the creative process is also one that gave birth to its title: Your Own Adventure. "The title is kind of a mantra to summarise my philosophy when writing and recording the album," he says. "I grew up immersing myself in all kinds of Fantasy genres and I loved the choose your own adventure game-books of Joe Dever. Other kinds of books I was reading throughout the writing process pointed me towards a kind of ‘belief in the self' - there's no definitive, correct way to live this life."


Despite the creative drive and singular determination behind the album, it's also one that has welcomed some outside input. "I'm very excited to have some guests on the album as I admire each of these musicians so much," says Kinghorn-Mills, referring to the input of Tim Smith (Midlake, Harp), Spencer Cullum, Holly Macve, Ryan Pollie and Oliver Newton, with the album being mixed by Chris Cohen in Los Angeles. "At some level it's a bit nerve wracking [bringing in other people] because this is something that you spend so much time building up and making sure that all the pieces are correct," he says. "Bringing people in can be like, 'oh god is this going to work?' I don't really ever collaborate much but when I do it's because I trust them."


Whether it was sitting at home and obsessing over every detail independently or adding some pedal steel all the way from Nashville, the ethos of the album remained rooted in trust, intuition and exploration - a sense of letting go and seeing where the project takes you. "I just decided I needed to more open minded, which was exciting, he says. "All the little parts of my imagination which had been activated in the past slowly came through. I guess that's again about freedom and your own adventure. Like, just let it happen. Whereas in the past I've been a bit more self-aware. I've definitely let my guard down on this record and not been afraid of the path ahead."
