The single is instantly infectious with its oscillating guitar chords and soaring vocals before subsiding into the first verse which gently pads the drums and builds up the bass keep us on a level playing field. The choruses see those bigger sounds come back to the fore giving an uplifting affliction and making you want to sing along to this great piece of storytelling set to music. A wonderful track.
The rising star gre up on the North side of Dublin and became infatuated with music from a young age specifically the passing on of stories through music. Artists such as Bob Dylan, The Beatles and Springsteen have all influenced this young man, something that really shows throughout his music. After teaching himself piano and busking from the age of 15, Eoin left Ireland at 21 moving to London with demos and a determination to play live as much as possible.
That paid off when he soon got noticed by industry insiders which resulted in this debut ‘Not Lost’ produced by Ian Grimble [Manic Street Preachers, The Clash]. The debut gained critical acclaim but was only released in Ireland back in 2011 but now the album, along with this brand new EP ‘Rain Finally Came’, will be released for the first time in the UK. It is a big moment in the young man’s career as this new EP marks a big new chapter in his musical career and it will be exciting to watch Glackin grow even further.
