The Mermaid in your Glass

from Icarus Girl by Siobhan McCrudden



The first single from Icarus Girl the debut album by Siobhan McCrudden. Released world-wide 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


The Mermaid In Your Glass

Hear the rush the hush
See the mermaid in your glass
All you ever loved is all that will remain
And as you fall you’re going
Fall too fast.

And all she’ll say
Before she swims away
Is tell me now
What you’re prepared to lose
You call her name
You’ll never be the same
And then you realize
Just how she made you choose
And how it sounds like an excuse

We built a house of cards
And backed against the walls
Saw the joker leering in
And as you rolled the dice
I knew that it would fall
But from the wreck I hoped
We could begin

But all you’ll say
Before you turn away
Is cut the deck
I’ll go and get a drink
You called her name,
You’ll never be the same
Did you remember me,
As you began to sink?
Oh my darling,
Did you even think?

All she’ll say,
before she swims away
is tell me now
what you’re prepared to lose

you’ll call her name,
you’ll never be the same
when did you realize
just how she made you choose
oh how did we lose?

Hear the rush, the hush, the blood that’s in your veins
