A self-assured and dis­tinc­tive sin­gle and EP has just been released by Cork alt-folk singer-song­writer Sarah Buck­ley called Wind Chimes. The song comes hot on the heels pre­vi­ous sin­gle release, Always Trou­ble and both tracks are on her new EP.

There’s more than meets the eye with Wind Chimes – the three-track EP as a whole is about acknowl­edg­ing that things have gone wrong with a rela­tion­ship. Sarah’s vocals have a charm­ing puri­ty that almost lulls you into think­ing her sub­ject mat­ter is all about love and sweet­ness. But there’s more going on behind the scenes… the lyrics delve into a rela­tion­ship gone wrong plus there are under­tones of dark­ness. The track Always Trou­ble is a case in point – a chill­ing title about being enmeshed in a sit­u­a­tion that was out of control.

Sarah has been gig­ging exten­sive­ly, play­ing show­cas­es and sup­port slots around Ire­land. She has opened for Mick Flan­nery, Gem­ma Hayes, Niamh Regan and Ham Sand­wich to name a few. Recent­ly, hav­ing been select­ed to take part in the ‘Cre­ative Moves Europe’ project (pro­gramme fund­ed by the Euro­pean Union), Sarah was work­ing on her music this sum­mer in the new envi­ron­ment of Berlin.
