Louise Cunnane strips everything back on new track 'Bare Bones (Demo Version)', which explores the painful breakdown of a committed relationship.
Formerly London-based, now returned to her native Mayo, electro-pop artist Blooms is back with the animated video for her new single 'Bare Bones (Demo Version)'.
Written by Blooms (Louise Cunnane) and Micheal Murphy, with a delicate video animated by Ciara Nolan, 'Bare Bones' is a stunning example of Cunnane's capabilities. With jarringly confessional lyrics and a gentle guitar melody accompanying the words, 'Bare Bones' does what the title implies.
"If you wanna hurt me right/Do it in the broad daylight/Say your vows were all a lie/All our moments losing life?" she sings, quietly. The video traces a rose growing and falling apart, as cracks appear on the pavement of their home.
Blooms first burst onto the scene in 2014 with her debut EP, If. A steadily rising presence for a number of years by harnessing her own brand of dark electro-pop, Blooms secured support slots for the likes of Ellie Goulding and Patti Smith. The musician's creativity has a keen versatile edge.
Recent single ‘Text Me When You Get Home’ was a reaction to the overbearing culture of male harassment of women in public and concern for their safety. Sarah Everard's death spurred Cunnane into writing a track about her feelings on the horrific incident.
Stay tuned for a new EP in 2022 titled Gold, with forthcoming single 'Shallow Water' out next month.
