Tadhg Daly’s momentum continues to rise this year, having just completed a successful European tour while also garnering acclaim from the likes of Amazon Music and BBC Introducing.
Today sees the release of his melancholic new single ‘Fall Apart’. Through Daly’s rich vocal delivery, the song offers listeners an intensely moving and powerful musical experience.
“I wrote ‘Fall Apart’ the morning after breaking up with my girlfriend. We had an argument the night before and it felt like anything we said or did was just moving us further away from where we were when things were good. It got to the point of our relationship where it felt we were literally just taking turns to ‘fall apart’ and need the other person more than is healthy. I was trying to explore the idea that maybe there is a time in any relationship when you need to look at each other and decide whether either of you have anything left to give, or whether you just leave things where they are and try to be friends.”
Tadhg Daly returns today with an alt-pop gem in the form of new single ‘Still Not Made It’.
A moving piece that was written about the struggles and pressures related to pursuing success, the song serves as a perfect taster to his upcoming EP ‘Forever Young’.
“So much pressure is put on people (especially creatives) to keep striving for success and the next big thing and whilst that drive can be inspiring it can also be crippling! Constantly hearing people from back home saying ‘I really hope you make it’ is just such a weird feeling to me like I don’t even really know what that means when I’m supposed to have made it. That sums up the song really. I think there is a lot of frustration, fear and then hope in the track.”
Tadhg performs at London’s Strongroom Bar and Kitchen on the 28th October, while new EP ‘Forever Young’ is out on 29th October 2021.
The first thing that catches your attention when you press play on ‘Your Heart’s Not In It’ is Tadhg Daly’s tremendously captivating and powerful vocal. The Jersey born, Irish singer and songwriter creates a kind of sound that feels honest, warm and relatable.
“‘Your Heart’s Not In It’ is written as the end of a love story based on some of my own experiences. It represents the moment at the end of a relationship in which one person has fallen out of love but hasn’t made their feelings clear, and the other person is left on the hook just wanting to hear the final words and find freedom to move on.”
