Irish indie singer-songwriter and guitarist Dubh Lee wields a wide variety of influences from folk, pop, and western rock in her low down new single, “Low Again.”
With fresh eyes directed toward self-examination, Lee authors her songs tailoring in themes of heartache and womanhood.
Having supported acts across Ireland along with landing a coveted residency in Dublin at the International Bar, Lee’s honest vocal style transcends mellow and mesmerizing into a force all its own. Inspired by legends before her like Leonard Cohen and Janis Joplin among others, Lee harnesses a unique vocal and lyrical combination that displays a mix of mellow indie folk with an earthly grassroots essence.
“Low Again” walks through the low valleys of substance use. With gentle storytelling and comforting choral hooks, Lee seamlessly writes the hills and pitfalls of addiction with grace and candor.
The light finger picking of acoustic guitar is joined with a dynamic pop-like chorus, chock full of endearing harmonies, elevating the song to new and desired heights. In the catchy chorus, Lee creates an ambient plain of existence and relaxation.
The new single feels like lying in a hammock on a river bank, a place for the listener to slow down and find comfort when they’re feeling low. A down tempo slow groove mixed with elements of traditional folk and more modern indie folk, the Irish songstress weaves old and new influences, making a sonic tapestry all her own.
“Low Again” is the first single released from the singer-songwriter’s debut EP, Animals and Friends, set to release this April. The 4-track album explores the artist’s internalized heartache, excess, romantic misadventures, and more. The release will be accompanied by an acoustic Irish tour, with 9 shows across multiple counties in March and April.
