Derry-based indie-pop star Reevah tells us about her lauded new EP, 'Begin, Again', and her upcoming Dublin headliner.
You’ve described your new EP as a DIY project – did embracing that independent ethos have a major influence on the sound?
Yes, it gave me a chance to reassess the sound of the music I was producing and making at the time. I decided I wanted to revisit older tracks of mine, and give them a new lease of life – in keeping with the style of music I am currently making for my debut album. The EP was a labour of love. Taking on this project was a lot more work than what I had initially anticipated! However, it was an essential learning experience in truly finding out what my music could become.
What was it like recording in Daithí and Norma’s The Beekeepers retreat in Co. Clare?
The Beekeepers residence was the ideal location to capture Begin, Again. With its stunning backdrop and scenic views, it provided the ultimate hub for music creation. It was a chance for us as a collective to escape everyday life and to focus solely on the creation of the EP. The location was integral.
What can we expect from your upcoming show at The Workman’s Cellar?
Myself and the band have been working extensively on our live setup and show. During our set we like to incorporate various elements, from full band tracks to more stripped-back solo songs. I’m really excited to play in Dublin again, and show how much we have grown as an act.
Are there any other releases in the pipeline over the months ahead?
I have a few projects on the go at the minute, as well as my debut album. I’m excited to see what the next few months bring, but can’t give away anymore than that just yet!
• Begin, Again is out now. Reevah plays The Workman’s Cellar, Dublin on February 4, as part of Eastbound Dublin.
