Music from the Heart

Brí - Hide

Hailing from Offaly, Irish indie pop artist Brí has previously released 3 singles, debut track, 'LowSupply', 'Polite' and 'Burying'. From the success gained from these releases she sold-out her own Whelan's headline show, received high praise from a multitude of blogs and radio and was selected to perform at Beatvyne's MusicX Tech Experience. While 2020 saw performances from Brí at the esteemed Whelan's Ones to Watch, The Ruby Sessions, headliners in The Sound House,Spirit Store, festival line-up announcements such as Vantastival and the radio success of her recent releases. Hide is her debut album.

Brí creates dreamy soundscapes that take the listener to the the land of Celtic myths and legends. Her angelic voice only solidifies the otherworldly feel. Throughout ten tracks she showcases both her vocal abilities and her skills as a lyricist. Especially the second half of the album shows what she's really capaple of. All the songs are deeply introspective, with her heart exposed to the world.

The title track differs significantly from the rest. It's not as gentle and ethereal as the majority of the album, it has hints of a rock number and you imagine it being played on a big stage with a full band and lights flashing.

In My Head is highly atmospheric composition on which Brí showcases her vocal range, being able to reach the high notes effortlessly and combining that with catchy melody and lyrics that will get stuck, exactly as the title suggests, in your head.

Time is a gentle piano based song where the intimacy expressed comes across very strongly. It carries a certain sense of nostalgia, the strings adding even more feeling to the arrangement.

Low Supply plays with the imagination, the music projects a stormy night on a remote island, the wind screaming all around, you're waiting for it to pass, waiting for the peace to be restored.

The album flows smoothly like a water in a stream, from one song to another, from the first chord to the last one. Brí leaves a lasting imprint on a listener.
