The Dublin singer-songwriter, Ailbhe Reddy, has released a personal song about the moment when you realise a relationship is ending and you’re beginning to move in a different direction from your partner. The song came together in a Glasgow hotel room when the contrast of her own isolation and the bustling streets outside seemed to reflect her mood and relationship: a mixture of loneliness and excitement.
She explains: “The lyrics are dealing with how it feels to make something work long distance while living on a very different schedule to my girlfriend back home. But it also reaches back to other times in other relationships where I couldn’t make things work because of the same issues, there was always something in the way, be it physical distance or timing.” Rhythmic, dreamy folk. Enjoy.
