Iron Goddess

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


Iron Goddess

I am the iron Goddess
I know your name
Rusting on my axis
As the world spins round again
No prophecy
Could foretell me
Yet here I shall remain.

Passing down the ages
As galaxies ferment
Alchemy as it rages
Distilling my intent
No alibi
Or anemic lie
The planets circumvent

I am the iron mother
Who beats inside your chest
Till you are torn asunder
Your metal to the test
This fools gold
Is eons old...

I am she
The ever free
The she who loves you best
I’ll draw you to your rest.
