Paddy Casey is set to release his brand new single ‘Won’t Take Much’ alongside announcing the release of his fifth album ‘Turn This Ship Around’, a double album.
‘Won’t Take Much’, the latest release from the album is a bouncy, uplifting, guitar-driven song bursting with brass and strings. Featuring on the first part of the double album ‘Turn This Ship Around’, the single reflects the upbeat, electric, synth and guitar driven side to the album, while the second part embodies a more laid-back, acoustic vibe.
Speaking of the single, Paddy Casey said: “‘Won’t Take Much’ is an independent production, recorded and produced in my own home studio. To capture the energy of a new song ‘coming to life’ the single was written and recorded in the same day with friends and bandmates being called on later to add strings and horns.”
Blending contemporary roots with rock, the award-winning band was formed by brothers Brendan and Declan Murphy from the border town of Newry.
Unable to tour during lockdown, thousands have enjoyed logging on to FB Live to see them perform tunes from 2016’s career highlight SUGAR ISLAND right back to their 1989 debut SONGS FOR THE TEMPTED, which first put them on the pop map with MARY, as well as their latest lockdown inspired radio hit WAITING GAME.
The regular rehearsing required for each live-streamed show has helped keep the brothers match fit, as Brendan explains:
“Considering that we’ve been off the road for a year and a half now, I actually think that we’ve got better, and while performing online is great, there’s nothing like the thrill of playing live on stage”
‘Friction Burns’ reflects the absolutely terrifying anticipation of letting yourself go in a new relationship with all the scars of past relationships and mistakes hovering. Inhibiting you from giving yourself fully, but facing those fears head on for the right person. Moving from a place of darkness to warmth and hope.
