Home/Blog/Blog: coming up/More than simple melancholy: Ailbhe Reddy

posted on August 6, 2020

“Between Your Teeth” is a promising preview for the upcoming album of Dublin artist Ailbhe Reddy. Reddy is already known and beloved for her rich alto voice, equally adept at conversational lyrics and soaring, aching hooks. At upcoming album “Personal History” Ailbhe Reddy combines her qualities with a more indie rock style, without losing the folkhewn roots of her sound. This results in a wonderful mixture of 10 profound and layered songs that go beyond some simple singing about a melancholic mood.

About “Between Your Teeth”: ‘It’s about the frustration of being unable to communicate in a relationship. Both people hold things back because they either don’t want, or don’t know, how to express themselves. While traveling alone, I always spent a lot of time thinking too much about past conversations and wondering what words were being held back between another person’s teeth.'(More here)
