Besant Hall Records Release 'Twilight Lavender' from 'Clapsholas' by Sibéal
Today, 22nd July, Besant Hall Records releases ‘Twilight Lavender’, the preview single from Irish sean-nos singer Sibéal’s forthcoming EP, ‘Clapsholas’ across all digital platforms, including Apple Music, Tidal, Amazon, Deezer, and Spotify.
‘Twilight Lavender’, was written by Sibéal, and draws on both her traditional roots as well as her love for contemporary music.
“Twilight Lavender is a song I wrote a few years ago. It has a sense of dreaming and escapism about it that I love. I suppose I was in a situation that I needed to escape from. I didn’t feel that this song fit into any specific genre, and I wanted it to feel like a stream of consciousness rather than planned out with a rigid structure. I think that the looseness of the form feeds into the idea of escapism and magic. Twilight itself is the most magical part of the day when your eyes can play tricks on you. Lavender is a magical flower that I read once can make your wishes come true when used correctly. There are a lot of stories about magic, spirits, and fairies in our tradition in Ireland and I suppose that some of this has been passed down to me even if it’s a subconscious thought rather than a conscious belief in them.”
‘Clapsholas’ will be released on all platforms on 5th August.
