Banríon's first solo single 'end times' was produced by Diarmuid O'Connor, who creates under his passersby moniker.
Dublin artist banríon has unveiled her first solo single in the first week of 2022, the gentle 'end times'.
The folk-leaning single explores the notion of finding beauty in the everyday mundanity of life, and features production from passersby. Her growth as an artist is effortlessly on show with the single's softer sound.
A delicate acoustic guitar marks the skeleton of the track, while banríon (Róisín Ní Haicéid) uses diaristic lyricism and nostalgia to bring the moments within the song to life.
2020 and 2021 saw the emerging young artist gain critical acclaim and the attention of fellow Dublin band Pillow Queens after releasing her airport dads EP alongside her fellow three band members: drummer Michael Nagle, bassist John Harding and guitarist Ivan Rakhmanin. Led by single 'Yesterday's Paper', the Connemara-recorded project saw the band carving out an indie-rock sound influenced by the likes of Sharon Van Etten, Soccer Mommy, Julia Jacklin and Snail Mail.
banríon also pursued two collaborative singles, 'do u miss her' with qwasi and the delicate 'Trouble' with Henry Earnest.
