‘Polyanthus Scent’, out now, is the second single from Ian Ashford’s second album ‘Inheritance” due out in the summer of 2021. The project is an Irish- Franco collaboration.
The Dublin musician’s new single, ‘Polyanthus Scent’ is a reflective and moving ballad about discovery and being drawn into a world that’s as foreign as it is familiar.
Ashford’s composition is based around stumbling upon a portrait in an old green house as a boy and from there, the song’s wistful and reflective meditation begins.
Ashford’s band features Bastien Choukroun, Simon McCourt and Arthur Duburcq.
A stirring composition about family and memory, Ashford’s number is a quiet and revelatory joy.
