Irish artist Emmet O’Brien new track ‘Dreams’ is a lofi rap/spoken-word hybrid.
Emmet O'Brien is not your generic poet. Bursting into the scene in March 2017, Emmet has not only released three books, but he is also a rapper, event organizer, playwright, and podcaster.
O'Brien, best known for his video ‘The North Side’, has had several festival appearances, playing Electric Picnic, Knockanstockan, Body & Soul, and All Together Now over the past couple of years.
The poet’s new track ‘Dreams’ is a personal and intimate track which sees Emmet dive into times of youth, and also his current mindset. O'Brien discusses the difference between the dreams he has had in his life, and subsequently the hardships he has lived through; discussing ideas such as mental health issues, substance abuse, and loss of friends.
He also discusses the positive thoughts he has planted in his head to keep him pushing, and the dreams he constantly hopes to fulfill to give life meaning.
This track provides hope to the artist and listeners: “even though our world is far from perfect if we continue to dream, we will continue to have a chance at succeeding and making a change,” a statement says.
