NEW MUSIC: Siobhan McCrudden – Following You

a3974282087_10

This track caught our ear this week as we trawled the internet to find some new and compelling music. Siobhan McCrudden is a Cardiff-based singer songwriter with a new album, Icarus Girl, coming out in a week’s time. Here’s a taste of it with the single ‘Following You’, a dark smoky folk song that has a hypnotic swirling quality. It’s mantra-like and draws you in with that wonderful accent and fine guitar playing. At times it reminds me of some of the more sparse and haunting moments of Beth Gibbons and Portishead.
