After the release of his previous two singles ‘Dive’ and ‘Sink Or Swim’, Chris Conroy is back with the last track on his debut EP ‘Wolves’.
Following on from his second single - Hot Press Track of the Day 'Sink or Swim' - Portlaoise artist Chris Conroy is back with another emotional anthem, titled 'Wolves'.
'Wolves' is a song expressing the struggle in loving someone while seeking different futures.
In this case, the speaker in the track, acting as the male wolf, talks about wanting to explore the wild and the unknown with his partner but she is afraid of leaving her comfort zone and the life she already knows. The rest of the song explores how the speaker is happier when he leaves in search of the unknown, but still can't get his ex-partner out of his head.
With rich vocal prowess and an easygoing charm, Conroy is steadily building up a fanbase for himself.
Named after his grandad, who coincidentally was one of the only other musically orientated member of his family, Chris was destined to pursue a career in music. Discovering a love for guitar and songwriting in his late teens, Conroy's life experiences have undeniably shaped how his music sounds today.
A constant battle between happiness and heartache, love and loss; Conroy's music details a refreshing and honest vulnerability, a defiant and hopeful mindset - all without taking himself too seriously.
Growing up listening to folk and pop singer-songwriters along the lines of Ed Sheeran, Damien Rice and Bon Iver; the Laois talent now draws inspiration from numerous hip-hop and R&B artists.
With his latest single, Conroy creates a dynamic pop track which ventures sonically into R&B tone, building on ballads of the best singer-songwriters in the business.
