We're delighted to bring you this first Thursday listen to 'Nocturnal', the second track to be lifted from Dubliner Luke Clerkin's upcoming What Little Time We Have EP. It's not officially out until June 5, but we've managed to get our hands on it a few days early...
Recorded locally in Cabin Space Studios with previous collaborator Gavin Doyle and Jack Keenan, it was mastered in London by the internationally renowned Pete Maher whose CV includes Jack White, Damien Rice and U2.
Like so many great songs, it was inspired by heartbreak.
"It’s about me reflecting on a past relationship, from the first night of meeting the person – the nerves and anxiety that can occur – to it becoming something that turned into an ‘almost love’," he says. “Then it moves on to looking back on the relationship a few months after it ending, and wondering if it should have finished when it did. The lyric ‘Is it my blame, things always end the same’, is me questioning this, and also looking back on other relationships in comparison.”
Having learned the live ropes in 2015 by performing over 250 gigs, Clerkin has embarked on multiple German tours and crossed the Atlantic for festival appearances.
