ATL's Track for the Day #374, Robyn G. Shiels
Across The Line
Robyn G. Shiels - If I Were Thy Demon
Wednesday 9th November, 2016
They say: “It's a dark lullaby which slowly penetrates the ears until all glimmer of hope is lost. Only through loss can one truly find themselves... the benefits of failure they call that."
We say: "If I Were Thy Demon sees Kilrea bard Robyn G. Shiels at his tender best. Redemptive and pleading, this is a ballad lyrically steeped in folklore, with Robyn’s melancholic delivery intensely moving.
Pedal drone, baritone harmonies and percussive bells lend a folk-horror flavour, painting images of blood and bracken. All in all, it’s haunting, beautiful and heart-wrenching."
The new single from Robyn G. Shiels, 'If I Were Thy Demon' launches tonight Wednesday 9th November, in The Empire Music Hall, Belfast. Support comes from Waldorf & Canon, Junk Drawer and Hatchet Field.
