This is the title track of Áine's second EP which will be released on the 30th of August.
ÁINE - Remember that name because she may well be the next big Irish Pop star! Step by step, the singer-songwriter from Cavan is building a strong reputation for herself, gaining in popularity thanks to her ambitious talent combined with a mesmerising voice.
'Dislocated,' available for stream here, is one of the four tracks set to be released on her new EP. It is a poignant song led by Áine's enthralling vocals - an ode to change and isolation before coming out stronger. The song was featured on Love Island's last Sunday episode: quite the milestone for the young artist, since the ITV2 reality show has continuously been under the spotlight, reaching its highest ever ratings on July 3rd when more than 4.7 million people tuned in. As a result, 'Dislocated' was heard by countless people across Ireland and UK before it was even released.
It all started in 2016, when Áine was performing in a pub and drew the attention of the BBC which then selected her to sing during their primetime coverage of Glastonbury, right before Coldplay's headline slot. Another achievement which first thrown her into the limelight.
Released on Valentine's Day earlier this year, her debut EP Blue Valentine, recorded with Parlophone, marked the beginning of a new chapter on her musical journey. And it seems that 2019 is definitely Áine's time to shine. Her closing track 'Black Dhalia' notched-up 600 000 streams on Spotify before the EP was released. Her sharp lyrics resonate well with her growing fanbase and so does her dark sense of humour, illustrated in the video clip for 'Blue Valentine' (directed by Noel Paul who has previously worked with the likes of Lily Allen and Bat For Lashes).
Also releasd by Parlophone, Áine's Dislocated EP is made of two others of her own songs, alongside a cover of Miley Cyrus and Mark Ronson’s country-pop-disco fusion ‘Nothing Break Likes A Heart’.
A rising artist to keep under your radar.
