'Allow and Breach' is the atmospheric latest single from the musical project of Tipperary-born electronic songwriter and producer, Eoin Hally.
Last week saw the release of the latest single, 'Allow and Breach', from rising electro-pop artist Vale.
Quietly building his catalogue and prolifically testing the waters with previous singles like ‘Tore It Down’ and ‘The Sun Is My Filter’, Vale is the moniker of Tipperary-born electronic songwriter and producer, Eoin Hally, who will be familiar to many from his previous band, Pale Rivers.
His latest single, 'Allow and Breach' is an atmospheric and beautifully expansive track. A striking musical project, Vale showcases Hally's honed writing skills and production that's not afraid to push boundaries, nor to show restraint. The result is expansive music that is as lush as it is sparse, with just the right level of restraint in between crescendos. Stream it below.
"'Allow and Breach' is about inner conflict," according to Vale. "It’s about wanting, more than anything, to give someone more than you can ultimately offer, and accepting this reality that we are bound by. The realisation that in a moment of crisis, when someone you love is in danger, the only role you can play is that of being there, in the moment. When no one else is."
Although Vale is yet to play live, having been conceptualised just before the dawn of lockdown in Ireland, the USA and Iceland, an incredible electronic live show is in the works with a full four piece band that includes Alex Ridley (HousePlants, Daithí) on drums, David O’Connor (Pale Rivers, The Workshop Studio) on Ableton and samples duty, Kate Twohig on piano and OP1 and Hally himself on vocals and, as he puts it, a whole bunch of synths.
'Allow and Breach' by Vale is out now. Stream it below.
