Davie Furey’s ‘Haunted Streets’: hopeful and heartfelt

Davie Furey sounds like a songwriter through and through. His pedigree is clear in his latest effort, ‘Haunted Streets’. Where some might fall flat in a Folk-Rock genre steeped in history, Furey shrewdly relies on a classic writing style and some musicianship from guests such as Steve Wickham (The Waterboys), Darren Holden (The High Kings) and ELLYD to impressively mark his territory.

Irish Folk-Rock, to the layman, may seem intimidating. Most people tend to think of a slow and trundling ballad sung by a trundling and slow dullard. However, Furey makes this idea completely forgettable, proving that authentic lyrics and emotive music is all that is needed to retain a listener’s attention.

For fans of Mark Knopfler, those who like something a bit more up-tempo, look no further than tracks Fire and Gold and The Final Frontier. And, for those looking for something more familiar, dip in to Secret Life for a warm and comforting lie down. 

I reckon this album would be good for a hangover. Like a robust hug, it’ll keep you company. And, for when the headache gets a bit much and the tears begin to rise, let the beautifully crafted and delicately mixed ‘Haunted Streets’ allow the tear ducts to burst and the emotion run out. Lean in to the sadness with an album that sounds a bit like hope.

Influenced by a mixture of 80s and modern electronic music, ‘Electric Gold’ is a motivational, uplifting single which gives strength to all of us who have endured isolation and poor mental health during our global pandemic, COVID-19.

Electric Gold reminds us, through all this hardship we are not alone and the single gives us hope that soon we will come together again and it will be over. The message of the song is to provide hope and escapism in the uncertain times we face but also to reassure us we can survive this period of social isolation.

“It’s about realizing that we are all our own heroes and will overcome these tough times and emerge together stronger. It is a shot of adrenaline to all of those obeying the rules so far to keep on going and a thank you/acknowledgement to frontline staff.” – Ruth Brosnan

Singer-songwriter Ruth Brosnan is based in Cork, Ireland. She graduated at CIT Cork School of Music in 2018 with a First-Class Honours BA in Popular Music.

Ruth then moved to LA to go on to hone her craft, where she won The Great American Song Contest. Following this success, she then moved back to Ireland where she went on to write and release her debut single ‘Good Enough’.

Electric Gold will be available to stream on Spotify, iTunes, Amazon Music, Google Play, Tidal, Deezer and Apple Music. You can watch the music video on Vevo/Youtube/Facebook/IGTV.

Paul Tully tackles ‘Anxiety’ head-on with latest single

Talented singer songwriter Paul Tully is on the cusp of releasing his latest single Anxiety (due 30th September).

The emotive track shines a light on anxiety, a disorder affecting millions across the globe yet still largely misunderstood.

Addressing this serious and emotional subject, Paul hopes the track will instil confidence in his fans, helping others dealing with anxiety to understand that they are not alone.

“I’m hoping the song could bring a sense of comfort to those suffering from anxiety and let them know they aren’t alone. When I wrote the song in June of this year, we were in the middle of lockdown and there was a real uncertainty regarding our health and well-being of not only ourselves but those closest to us.”

Anxiety is a track that firmly establishes Tully as an emotive storyteller; a songwriter who knows how to truly connect with his audience through music.

“We have ever-increasing living costs, the never-ending Brexit and a complete lack of job security – people really are at their wits end. The song basically describes my experience with anxiety and I hope it can help anyone listening and know that they aren’t alone”.

Paul Tully is one of Ireland’s best kept secrets. Having established himself as a talent in his hometown of Strabane, Paul has continued to blossom in the Irish music scene, supporting the likes of Paddy Casey and Paul Brady.

That’s not all. Paul Tully’s 2013 debut EP Lyric for the Lost remains a firm fan favourite to both audiences and Irish radio. Since then, Paul has performed alongside some incredible artists, from Foy Vance and Cara Dillon – to the Grammy Award-winning Jim Lauderdale as part of the Belfast Nashville Songwriters Festival.

Honest, moving and authentic, Paul Tully creates incredible tracks with meaning. Anxiety is a perfect example of Paul Tully’s storytelling and thought-provoking style that is truly like no other.
