“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)

>The release of Ailbhe Reddy’s debut album “Personal History” will be 5 years after EP “Hollowed Out See.” And Ailbhe has been making waves in her Ireland since. Her debut EP included the break out single “Distrust” that garnered critical acclaim and over 3 million streams on Spotify. Since then Ailbhe Reddy has released another EP and 4 singles which have received critical acclaim from the likes of Line of Best Fit, Clash Magazine and Earmilk. She has played many festivals in the Europe, such as Glastonbury, Latitude, Primavera and Electric Picnic.

Her showcasing at SXSW this year would have been the next step in her career. Because of the pandemic the festival was cancelled. Reddy used her time in quarantine to prepare the release of her highly anticipated debut album. Erland Cooper and SOAK collaborator Tommy McLaughlin produced Reddy’s upcoming album.”Personal History” arrives October 2nd through Reddy’s own label Friends of the Family. You can pre-order here.
