The new single is out now.
As part of his series of collaborative projects, Daithí releases his new track with indie folk artist Ailbhe Reddy.
The electronic producer took inspiration from his homeland of Clare for his new song, ‘Submarines’.
Although it is house music, ‘Submarines’ has undertones of traditional Irish music samples in the fist-bumping track.
“Being at home in Clare around family is the place I feel most safe and secure, it’s a really comforting feeling, and I find it’s a great place to recuperate,” says Daithí. “I wrote Submarines as a way to capture these emotions in music. Traditional music has always been strongly rooted in my family. I have fond memories of my brother playing the flute when we were young, so I really wanted to introduce that to this particular song.”
“I had always wanted to work with Ailbhe, and she really took a shine to this one. Mixing both my original theme and her vision together created something magic, it was so great to work with her on this,” he continues.
This song belongs to a series project by the Irish producer with features from other musicians, including Paul Noonan of Bell X1, David Tapley of Tandem Felix, and Stace Gill of The Sei.
The two-time RTÉ Choice Prize nominee has a number of gigs lined up for the summer including at The Duke of York in Belfast on May 24, Forbidden Fruit on June 2, Mother Pride Block Party in Dublin June 29, supporting Orbital at the Galway Arts Festival on July 27 and Love Sensation in Dublin on August 17.
