A Sin Nonetheless

from Icarus Girl by Siobhan McCrudden



From the debut album Icarus Girl by Siobhan McCrudden. Released worldwide on 7 December 2018 on hungersleep records.

Noted as ‘One to watch’ by NewSoundWales, Siobhan McCrudden’s voice has been described as ‘fragile, pure and hugely distinctive’. Siobhan crafts songs of intensity and sweetness, recounting personal stories whilst reflecting a vivid fascination with dark folk tales and superstitions. The result is a hauntingly nostalgic and elemental set of alluring narratives and exquisitely melancholic songs that defy any one particular genre and entrance the listener through their spell- binding beauty.

‘Icarus Girl’ is carefully arranged and produced by acclaimed art-rock musician GRICE who has infused the songs with his subtle yet distinctive instrumentation. These shades magnificently showcase her haunted, folk-noir sound.

'Siobhan McCrudden really does have a voice of great intensity and beauty' NewSoundWales

‘music from the morning mist at the edge of a wood’ From the Margins

‘Absolutely beautiful ... just stunning, the voice is something else’ Adam Walton, BBC Radio Wales


A Sin Nonetheless

The sight of him, a mortal sin
You turn your head away.
Then on your knees
Your rosaries
You find the breath to say.
But the soft pull of his light,
You’re a moth
Out in the night.

Turn on your wing,
Confess everything.
To whom did you pray?

Oh pious one, you are undone,
Like ribbons on a dress.
Now from your lips a different song,
You sing as you confess.
Now sinners and saviors will feast.
And inside every beauty a beast.
Oh, oh, oh....

How shall you repent,
When sin, heaven-sent,
Is sin nonetheless?
