The Irish alt-folk creator Chirpy released the LP Real Life on the 27th.
The first thing to capture attention is the stunning vocal that has an hypnotic timbre and a spell from which the listener has no desire to break. Underpinning the layered harmonics of voice is an equally intoxicating range of instrumentation, which includes, harp and guitar amongst others.
Whilst instinctively you may think that folk really isn’t your thing, I assure you once hitting play you will become transfixed and desirous of sinking in to the richness of the roughly nineteen minutes of the six compositions – my selection of which is the third – Heavy Hearted.
Word also arrives of a more extensive eponymous release due in November which I am already looking forward to hearing.
Real Life – EP – Chirpy is available on iTunes.*
