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.
