It's been eventful for teenager Curtis Walsh in his fledgling career so far. Having quickly made a name for himself with a string of local shows and supporting slots, the Clondalkin native's debut single 'Full Recovery' was released to widespread acclaim earlier this year, having amassed over 2.5 million streams to date. The song represented a milestone in the singer-songwriter's emergent career, as it opened him up to a far wider audience having been added to several thousand playlists, as well as being supported on the likes of BBC Radio 2, Amazing Radio and a host of prominent Irish stations.
Displaying a maturity beyond his years, 'Full Recovery' demonstrated Walsh's ability to craft snappy and melodic pop hooks with meaningful subject matter, and left expectations high for what was next.
In the shape of follow-up single 'Perfect Rain' - released today with an accompanying music video - Walsh has proved that his debut wasn't a one-off and appears to have struck gold again with an emotive effort that tackles the complexity of relationships in adolescence.
