The Irish queen of Sprechgesang, Sinead O’Brien returns with ‘Strangers In Danger’ the latest glimpse of the Limericker’s upcoming EP ‘Drowning In Blessings’ out September 16th 2020.

‘Drowning In Blessings’ sees O’Brien appropriately paired with produced by Dan Carey who is best know for his work with fellow exponents of Sprechgesang Fontaines DC and Kate Tempest.

‘Strangers In Danger’ examines O’Brien’s rumination of coexistence between the artificial and the ordinary from the outskirts and margins.  She explains “I had a strange epiphany during a gig. “Plastic flowers in bloom and the sound of soccer”. I couldn’t make sense of it – I wrote it down and later began to take it apart. It’s about a kind of duality where something is divided by having two apparently conflicting meanings. A feeling is mirrored in an external scene and illustrated in another language. The image simplifies the problem because it just is. It exists. With all of its complexities and contradictions. I felt connected to various images and occurrences around me and began sound-tracking these mini scenarios.”

O’Brien will tour ‘Drowning In Blessings’ in the opening portion of 2021 including a date upstairs in Whelan’s on March 20th. Tickets €13.00
