The 17-year-old musician has returned to releasing solo music after a busy schedule with his hugely popular Limerick-based band 50 Foot Woman.
Eoin Ryan, bassist for the young punks 50 Foot Woman, has dropped some exquisite new solo work in the form of the single, ‘When It Rains’.
The track follows the release of the young singer-songwriters sophomore EP Fog Man, earlier this year.
‘When It Rains’ showcases the young musician’s expert lyricism and guitar abilities, oozing an indescribable Gary Lightbody and Morrissey meld. Eoin's incredible vocal fronts the release, with the song's heartbreakingly sweet melody setting the perfect backdrop for his emotional lyrics.
A much more mature sound than his age indicates, Ryan is clearly lightyears beyond his age in talent, with his dedication to his craft evident in this single, as well as his other solo-work.
His soft indie solo-work is substantially different to where he's commonly seen - rocking out to fast, hyper-punk riffs in the country's punk-rock haunts - Fred Zeppelins, The Record Room, Dolan's and more.
Recorded in Music Generation Limerick as part of their forthcoming compilation album, the 17-year-old has dubbed 'When It Rains' his “most expansive” track, claiming that the use of synth has opened up “a whole new door” to something he hasn’t explored before.
“I’m quite proud of it,” Eoin gleefully said. “Although I've been playing the track for almost a year now, I still enjoy it and hope that the lyrics resonate with the listener in whatever way they interpret it.
"It feels good to finally have it out there, either way. It's being released following a long patch of silence for my solo output, so I'm hoping to keep the ball rolling and have more music in the works!”
