Maria Kelly is an artist that has always been a favourite on this blog ever since I recorded a session with her upstairs in Whelan's last year. After the release of her debut single 'Black & Blue' earlier this year the Mayo musician is back with new song 'Stitches', a song that showcases her growth in songwriting with a more mature feel to the track.
Stitches sets the tone from the get go with the lyrics "I've got a black heart, swallowing stitches...". This dark tone is found throughout with the delicate strings and guitar picking only adding to the emotional lyrics. The best way to describe Maria is Ireland's answer to Daughter. With some more experience under her belt Maria will be a force to be reckoned with in the Irish music scene.
Stitches is set to be released via Veta Records on October 7th.
