Rising alternative/indie sensation Sarah Crean has also been flexing her production skills of late, helping Hannah Horan with new single 'Holy One'.
Sarah Crean has dropped a surprise live EP, recorded at Sofar Sounds Belfast and named after a recording studio in the city.
The stunning four-track project features previous singles '2:00am' and 'French Boy', plus a gorgeously simple cover of Bruce Springsteen's hit 'Dancing in the Dark' and album track 'Fate Induced Insomnia'.
Indie-rock track '2:00am' is influenced by the likes of Japanese Breakfast and Dayglow, produced by Sarah and Adam O'Leary. The track itself is a passion-filled plea for a person to explicitly tell you how they feel, instead of relying solely on their actions to do so.
As with recent release 'Show Me Nuance', Crean decided to work towards a much bigger sound in comparison to her earlier works. The stripped down versions, however, highlight the spine-tingling voice and introspective narration at the centre.
The Dubliner is commemorating a year of her debut album, Call For Refinement. Her new live EP shows a different side to the studio performance, injecting delicate acoustic elements and placing the spotlight entirely on her crystal clear, faultless vocals.
The singer-songwriter will support fellow Dublin-based talent Trophy Wife at her Whelan's show on August 28th. She also delivered a captivating set at Hen's Teeth last week.
