Sinead O’Brien – Time Bend and Break The Bower

'Time Bend And Break The Bower' is a varied, brilliant collection of ideas.

Label: Chess Club
Released: 10th June 2022

It would be all too easy to imagine Sinead O’Brien’s individual stylings becoming a ‘bit much’ across a whole album.

Mixing poetry with post-punk, her grasp of both style and substance has made for some thrilling moments, but a full-length needs more than that, especially when so idiosyncratic. Such is O’Brien’s creative vision, though, that no such fears come to pass.

‘Time Bend And Break The Bower’ may have stylistic threads, but it’s also a varied, brilliant collection of ideas, thoughts and theories that pushes beyond the thickly drawn boundaries of genre or form.
