Music from the Heart

Blue Fish Diamond - Song for Love (single)

Formed in 2016 by Jim Murphy, Dublin indie folk band Blue Fish Diamond released their debut album From Dark to Light in 2018, which Hot Press Magazine described as “essential listening for those who like their music powerful and heartfelt”. Their music has been played on radio stations across Ireland and they're also a staple of the Irish live scene having played Electric Picnic, Whelans, The Workmans Club and The Grand Social to name a few.. With influences ranging from Tom Petty, R.E.M and Neil Young, Blue Fish Diamond bring a new delicately harmonic and refreshing take to a staple genre.

Song for Love, as the title suggests, is a tender ballad full of sweet emotions, guided by Jim Murphy's soft personable vocal where you get the impression he's singing just to you. Everything is backed up by exquisite arrangement and a first class musicianship. If you haven't fallen in love with music before, this track will make you change your mind.

Produced by Gavin Glass in Orphan Recording studios, Song for Love describes a form of love to which many of us aspire. About the song Jim Murphy says "Song for Love is about pure love. It speaks to a connection that transcends the material world, conveyed through dreamy imagery. While the picture it paints is utopian, I think that many of us try to build aspects of its sentiment into our relationships”.

"Close your eyes, pretend you’re in a dream

I’ll take your hand and I’ll lead you to the sea

Where we will travel far In search of perfect star light"
