Ireland is a beautiful place. Cocooned in vast valley’s, natural habitats, and the cascading hills that grace its landscape. So when thinking about the country’s musical endeavours, it isn’t a giant leap to assume that within its burrows, hide creative minds that equally spawn wonder themselves. And one of those brilliant minds, rests in the intelligent curiosity of wide-eyed Armagh native, Conchúr White. The young man that has crafted Silences, in body and soul.
The band’s latest offering ‘There’s A Wolf’, enacts its whiling lures upon gentle lulling electronics and acoustic folk-inflected backing, which later is spun into something of much grander proportions. The ambiguity that surrounds the imagery of the wolf is much more complex than you might expect, as Conchúr explains: “‘There’s A Wolf’ is about the menace of nostalgia and how our minds can reinterpret our memories and feelings to make us miss something that we never cared that much for.”
‘There’s A Wolf’ is taken from Silences forthcoming EP ‘Luna’ due for release on 15th April.
