Inspired by the cinematic sounds of London Grammar, Haim, Rhye and Bon Iver, Beverly began producing demo recordings from her bedroom at an early age.
Indie-folk songwriter Jackie Beverly has shared her long-awaited debut EP Temporary State today, coinciding with her biggest show to date in Whelan’s Main Room tonight.
With this new body of work set to finalise her well-deserved place in the music industry, Jackie has been dubbed in the past as Ireland’s answer to Laura Marling, Phoebe Bridgers and Lucy Dacus.
This EP release features two brand new tracks unheard to date, ‘Changeling’ and 'Vico Road' after the famous Dalkey Street. The former continues Beverly’s ballad style narrative that’s typical in her writing, and is filled with her well-known pure vocal at the forefront, accompanied by reassuring electric guitar and a new feature of trumpet and piano also appears.
'Changeling' delves into Irish mythology themes and reflects upon inner battles of loneliness. The latter, 'Vico Road', is a big and atmospheric step out of her familiar indie-folk world, and is the sonic climax of the entire EP. Working with producer Joe Furlong (The Cope) to bring this vision to life, it is a perfect finisher closing the chapter of this debut body of work.
Wowing audiences in the past at Mondo NYC, Ireland Music Week, plus opening sets for Kelsey Lu, A. Smyth, Sorcha Richardson, SPRINTS and more; Beverly has been carefully biding her time and focusing all her energy on creating this body of work.
Temporary State is a collection of songs that was written during various stages of transit over the past couple of years.
"While each track contains themes and stories unique to themselves, there is a refined common thread of personal journey and change which winds a path through each of the songs, connecting them together," a press release reads.
Laytha and Galia Arad will join Jackie Beverly on her biggest show to date in Whelan's Main Room tonight (September 8th)
