EP: Ailbhe Reddy – ‘Attach To Memory’

Having already built a strong following on Spotify with over 1.5 million streams, rising Irish artist Ailbhe Reddy is back with her new EP Attach To Memory.

Attach To Memory is the perfect coffee shop soundtrack and has had an amazing reception so far, with Record Of The Day telling listeners to “prepare to be floored” and Wonderland Magazine calling it “haunting and breathtaking”.

The four track EP brings us a mixture of upbeat, vocal-dominating soul that can be heard in lead single ‘Fingertips’, solid indie-folk (‘Never Loved’), tantalising hooks (‘Disconnect’) and hauntingly poetic lyrics (‘Loose’). This release has something for everyone, so it’s no surprise she’s tipped for an international breakthrough this year.

It’s her most honest EP to date and speaking about ‘Fingertips’, Ailbhe says “lyrically it focuses female sexuality, which is a topic I wanted to push forward and explore from a position of strength and confidence.”

Since 2014, Ailbhe has been gathering a huge following in Ireland, and following endless radio and TV features, she now has a packed touring schedule in Ireland, UK, France and Germany – including a festival appearance at the Cambridge Folk Festival on 29 July.

Attach To Memory is out now.
