Irish Singer Ciaran Lavery Releases Heartfelt New Single "Full Love"
Anything sung by Ciaran Lavery is automatically a dream because he’s just got one of those voices. Luckily, the Irish singer-songwriter’s discography spans a solid six years so we’ve got plenty of material to swoon over from him.
Spinning acoustic folk tunes with a darkened edge, Ciaran continues to deliver song after song of honest, quietly rollicking reflection. In preparation for his upcoming album dropping later this year, Ciaran’s got a Double-A single to release — yesterday marked the release of “Full Love” but we’ll get “Selene” in just a few weeks.
Hear what Ciaran had to tell us about the Double-A project below:
Inspired by the sultry slow-jams of the 90s, “Full Love” is almost theatrical, built on a tender piano progression before swapping out for lush acoustic strums, but there are layers to “Full Love.” There’s a weight to it at its very beginning, heavy with the kind of raw musings that sit on your chest, but it soon moves at a faster pace as Ciaran’s vocals are projected more passionately before dropping again into a plaintive croon. For nearly four minutes, Ciaran walks us through a world of equal parts wistful wonder and desperate pleas — “Full Love” is indeed a slow-burn, misting and beating from the sidelines as we listen carefully with eyes closed and hearts open.
