Heart In The Water is the first release following the announcement of their support slot on George Ezra’s UK and Ireland summer tour, and their run of festival dates at Sea Sessions, Lytham Festival and The Indie-pendence.

Speaking about the new track the band, say, “Heart In The Water is about mortality, and the fleeting nature of life. It’s about taking chances regardless of the risk.

“That extends beyond relationships, towards everything in life, reflective of lots of little things, but a certain emotion. That emotion serves more as an expression of a place of ours growing up, in terms of family and friends.”

Named after the bird which frequents the river Boro in Eddie’s native Wexford, the Limerick-based trio produce, write, and record their own music at their home studio, which happens to be located on a dairy farm.
