Maria Kelly has been an artist close to my heart ever since I first stumbled across her music 2 years ago. The raw emotion that emits from her vocals is so captivating, couple that with her strong songwriting skills and I can't see a reason not to fall in love with Maria Kelly's music.
The Mayo native has returned with 'Far Below', the new single taken from her debut EP 'The Things I Should', due out on 19th May 2017.
The EP is based around Maria’s struggle with self-expression and how, by always trying to please others, you can lose a part of yourself in the process. Maria explains, “these four songs are written about four different personal experiences, where a lack of honest expression at the outset had created a much bigger problem in the long run”.
'Far Below' is a song that starts off delicately with Kelly's voice taking the lead role before leading us to a build up of emotion.
You can catch Maria perform on her Far At Sea tour with Ailbhe Reddy throughout the month of May.
