Bell X1 and Dowry Strings' Live at St Luke's album will be available digitally on November 25th.
Bell X1 & Dowry Strings have released a second track from their upcoming new album, Live At St Luke’s, in the form of 'Light Catches Your Face'.
The fan favourite offering originally appeared on the album Blue Lights On The Runway, but has been given new life and intimacy with the arrangement by Éna Brennan from Dowry Strings.
The track follows the release of 'The Upswing (Live at St. Luke's). Merging deeply personal songwriting and everyday vignettes with the soaring string sections, 'Light Catches Your Face' becomes even more rich, cinematic and textured.
"But the words on the page start to swim / As light catches your face you're smiling / This must be what all the fuss is about," Noonan croons on the romantic offering.
“Light Catches Your Face is a song that’s been enjoying its bath of strings, for sure," Paul Noonan of Bell X1 (featuring Dave Geraghty and Dominic Phillips) says. "The emotion rings more true with the proper grown-up swells and feeling that they bring. It is as ever a song for my mam, your mam, all the mams."
Dowry Strings is composed of acclaimed Ireland-based musicians Éna Brennan, Nozomi Cohen, Yseult Cooper Stockdale and Gareth Quinn Redmond.
Live at St Luke’s was recorded at the venue of the same name in Cork this past April with Phil Hayes. The project will be released digitally on November 25th
Some tickets remain for the band's Vicar Street gig on November 24th, all other dates are sold-out.
