In this latest edition of The Last Mixed Tape’s song-of-the-week feature The Mixed-Tape we turn our attention to Ailbhe Reddy and her latest single ‘Relent’.
A natural but by no means small progression from Hollowed Out Sea, Ailbhe Reddy’s latest offering ‘Relent’ finds the artist opening the scope of her music and delving into more bombastic alternative-pop territory while keeping the emotive core of her songwriting.
Starting small and intimate, ‘Relent’ eventually builds and gives way to a large-scale finale that adds a real bite to Reddy’s sound through a well-tempered production that lets loose but never results in Ailbhe’s vocal seeming lost.
‘Relent’ is yet another clear sign of Ailbhe Reddy’s fast and self-assured evolution as a songwriter and artist.
Ailbhe Reddy will play her biggest headline show to date at the Sugar Club on February 22nd. Tickets are priced at €14.85 and are available via thesugarclub.com
