Irish poet and performer Sinead O’Brien has recently shared her new track ‘Strangers In Danger’ and announced her debut EP Drowning In Blessings was released on 16 September. Produced by Dan Carey (Speedy Wunderground, Fontaines D.C., Kate Tempest) the EP is O’Brien’s first fuller body of work following a string of rapturously received singles including ‘Taking On Time’, ‘A Thing You Call Joy’, ‘Fall With Me’ - and recent release ‘Roman Ruins’. O’Brien has also just announced a March 2021 U.K. headline tour.
Originally from Limerick, O’Brien’s work captures the everyday and the in between in a way that transcends any genre label. Writing from her own observations, O’Brien’s influences can be found in the realism of Mark E. Smith of The Fall, Patti Smith and The Slits, and the works of literary icons such Frank O’Hara, W.B. Yeats, Joan Didion and Albert Camus. Releases to date have drawn admiration from British and American outlets and radio stations as diverse as The FADER, Stereogum, The Guardian, Loud and Quiet Magazine, The Quietus, BBC Radio 1 and BBC Radio 6 Music, and more.
A multifaceted artist, O’Brien’s writing has also been published by the esteemed London Magazine whose alumni include T.S. Eliot, Sylvia Plath and William Burroughs. Her unique fusion of spoken lyrics and art rock has piqued the attention of luminaries of both fields, seeing her perform with John Cooper Clarke and The Brian Jonestown Massacre at sold out theatres across the U.K. Playing live with her band and collaborators; Julian Hanson (guitar) and Oscar Robertson (drums), Sinead O’Brien’s transfixing performances are placing her at the forefront of a wave of independent British and Irish talent that is taking over the capital and beyond.
