New Music Announced by Trad Folk Group Billow Wood ‘If You Come Back’ feat. Séamus Ó Flatharta Out Oct 23rd
Billow Wood are a male/female Irish band who fuse their unique brand of instrumentation with multi-vocals and harmonies. Taking inspiration from Irish folk melodies and modern contemporary rhythms, they are creating their own unique sound. For their new single ‘If You Come Back’, they have teamed up with Séamus Ó Flatharta to create this amazing blend of old Ireland meets new Ireland.
Seamus is a gifted Sean Nos singer, and together with the rich folk sounds of Billow Wood, they have created something fresh and new. The marriage of English and Irish has created an altogether raw and rugged feel on a song that sheds light on a familiar topic, “mans relationship with the Earth”. If You Come Back was written especially for this project by the talented Niall McCabe based on Clare Island, Co. Mayo.
Working together with Billow Wood they have created a rhythm driven anthem which encapsulates the raw emotion for the struggle to keep our earth alive. The song tells us of how we have “messed up” the relationship with our environment, and make us question our ability to sustain a healthy and thriving world. “But If you come back, would we just do the same again”.
Now more than ever we are aware of the effects modern humans are having on the earth and the environment with rising temperatures and sea levels. If You Come Back was mixed and mastered by Alex Browick, and he has created an other worldly sounding production.
‘If You Come Back’ is out Oct 23rd on all digital platforms.
