Maria Kelly ft. Ailbhe Reddy “Threads” – Listen

Seems like a long time since we’ve featured folktronica – not so long ago you couldn’t walk down the street without tripping over a half dozen examples of the genre.  Threads is the new single from Irish singer-songwriter Maria Kelly who has teamed up with rising artist, friend and recent touring buddy Ailbhe Reddy.  The haunting Threads  challenges a non-committal lover to choose: a deeper relationship or the door.  It’s ethereal and reverb heavy, with a booming bass-line sounding like waves breaking on a shingle beach during a decisive twilight walk .  In winter.

Sure, I could climb high in a tree, or go to Skye on my holiday. I could be happy. All I really want is the excitement of first hearing The Byrds, the amazement of decades of Dylan's music, or the thrill of seeing a band like The Long Ryders live. That's not much to ask, is it?
