Maria Somerville

Maria Somerville draws on folk forms alongside post-punk, traditional Irish motifs, starry eyed pop and hypnotic drones to create wholly original music that is borne of her roots in Connemara, Western Ireland.

Her debut album All My People (self-released on 1 March and distributed by Rush Hour), channels the wilderness of the Irish landscape through dense, ethereal soundscapes, bare boned percussion and a heady electronic undertow, interspersed with ghostly vocals that are ever present and all encompassing, like crystalline glints of sunshine peeking through dark stormy clouds.

Her enigmatic and enthralling live show comes in both solo and band shape, born of ties with fellow Irish maverick Davy Kehoe (Wah Wah Wino).

'with lazily strummed electric guitar and full-bodied organ chords shining through the lo-fi production like a milky sun, she waltzes through the shoegazing ballad with wonderment' — The Guardian

'gorgeous, hazy, distant-but-intimate dream pop' — Gorilla vs Bear
