New Music: BLÁNID

Irish starlet BLÁNID crafts a beautiful blend of indie, folk and pop that feels timeless in it’s essence.

Both emotive and intriguing in equal measures, her new single ‘Dead Men Dancing’ features a swirling soundscape and surrealist lyricism about feeling lost in a disintegrating relationship, 

“Oddly enough the idea came to me when I was watching the 80s comedy film, ‘Airplane 2’. There’s a moment where a character sees two dead men waltzing outside of the spacecraft. Though the moment is comedic, the image seemed to have an awful majesty about it, and it stayed with me for a long time. Much later on when I was writing about a situation I was in, it struck me that me and this other person were like those two men dancing. We were rotating in stasis, trying to pretend that everything was fine when really, we were suffocating.”
