Nuala Honan delves into the paradoxical vulnerability and strength to be found in human connection, on new track Slow Down. It is the first exuberant new single to be lifted from het second album, which launches later this year following a spell of personal recuperation and creative evolution for the Bristol-based, Australia-born independent artist.
Slow Down is a track with an impressive sound. I like the powerful guitar riffs. Besides, the vocals are magical. Furthermore, I am also a fan of the dynamic rhythms and mellifluous harmonies.
On this single, Honan elaborates: “Slow Down explores that familiar struggle of loving someone who is in pain, and feeling desperate to take their pain away. It is the struggle to stay connected when you feel utterly disconnected. It’s an angry release, but with a tenderness fuelled by fierceness. It explores themes of psychosis, and it draws on the fantasy and wild majesty o f Irish Celtic heritage , lyrically referencing the theme of the legendary Irish myth, The Children of Lir .”
Honan creates new universes with her music, Slow Down has such a unique vibe. Be sure to stream it as soon as possible!
