Following on from last months second album announcement, ‘Come As You Are’, due for release 31st May 2024 via Faction Records, Ireland's critically acclaimed artist Niamh Regan has today shared the record's brilliant new cut, Belly. Described as “a light-hearted song with full band production, dealing with an idea of feeling like a broken record and not being heard”, the track's supple melodies and soft timbres create another moving composition built upon its lyrical dexterity. Speaking about the record in more detail she goes on to say, “A lot of it is about being in your late twenties and kind of realising we’re all running out of time,” she ponders. “I’d have bouts of massive self-belief in the studio, and then in the next breath I would be like, ‘This is the worst piece of music I could have even imagined.’ It was a rollercoaster. But through that I found self-acceptance; this is where I’m at and making peace with that. That’s what the album essentially is, just making peace with where I’m at and being realistic with myself.” Take a listen to Belly for yourselves below.
