Icarus Girl

from Icarus Girl by Siobhan McCrudden



The title track 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


Icarus Girl

We climbed the mountain to the ridge to see the stars
they shot like silver arrows to bury their heads in my heart

And I did not die from these wounds
oh brighter than the the sun
your hand in mine
we rose to meet them
one by one

and I am amazed to say
theres much I did not know
about the space you'd leave
whenever you go

I was not afraid to fall
oh I was scared to fly
an icarus girl
her wings so bright against the sky
I have crashed
and I burned
to the ocean
a salt pool of my tears
But that was long ago
the tide wore down my fears

you held my hand
you did not hold me down

I have read between the lines
your palms are like a map
I am lost I am found
and I know that there is no way back
Oh Icarus, Icarus come
and lay your wings to rest
your feathers fall
you soar forever
in my chest

and I am amazed these days...

Just never go.....
