Sinead O’Brien is back with a new EP, and teaser-track ‘Strangers In Danger’.
It’s a cut from the Irish poet and performer’s Dan Carey-produced record ‘Drowning In Blessings’, due 16th September via Chess Club Records.
“I had a strange epiphany during a gig,” she explains of the new track. “”Plastic flowers in bloom and the sound of soccer.” I couldn’t make sense of it – I wrote it down and later began to take it apart.
“It’s about a kind of duality where something is divided by having two apparently conflicting meanings. A feeling is mirrored in an external scene and illustrated in another language. The image simplifies the problem because it just is. It exists. With all of its complexities and contradictions.
“I felt connected to various images and occurrences around me and began sound-tracking these mini-scenarios.”
Give the new ‘un a listen below, and catch Sinead on tour next March.
