Watch the video for Krea's gorgeous single 'The Callows' below. Krea is also set to perform as part of the Hot Press Y&E Series at 7pm on 19 October, live via the Hot Press Instagram.
In ‘The Callows,’ the title track from her debut EP as a solo artist, Krea invites listeners on a deeply personal and introspective journey, blending her captivating storytelling with staggering melodies and refined folk vocals.
The accompanying video is a serene visual spectacle. Shot by Laura Sheehan in the stunningly bueatiful Shannonbridge, Co.Offaly, it depicts Krea by the water - connecting with the surrounding lanscape as she battles with her inner-turmoil.
It has been a whirlwind year for Krea, the stage name adopted by acclaimed Irish singer-songwriter Karen Cowley. Following a hiatus from the hugely successful Wyvern Lingo, she was awarded the prestigious Music Bursary by the Arts Council, as well as a residency at the renowned Centre Culturel Irlandais in Paris. It was during this residency that she dedicated her time to crafting the songs that would make up her debut solo EP, The Callows.
In late 2022, she embarked on her solo journey with the enchantingly serene debut single, 'September Sun'. This was soon followed by 'Last Day of the Year,' a track which received high praise from Hot Press for its fusion of winter comforts and honey-like melodies.
No stranger to the Irish music scene, Krea achieved two number one albums as a member of the indie band Wyvern Lingo. Her talent has led her to collaborate with esteemed Irish artists such as Denise Chaila and Hozier, with whom she featured on the chart-topping duet 'In A Week' from Hozier's debut album.
Krea is also set to perform as part of the Hot Press Y&E Series at 7pm on 19 October, live via the Hot Press Instagram.
