Laoise FitzGerald comforts her inner child on latest single ‘You Fall Like Snow’

May 18, 2023


‘You Fall Like Snow’ is the latest single by Dublin-Based composer and vocalist Laoise FitzGerald. Set for release on May 18th, the single is deeply comforting with a playful melody that was written by Laoise to her infant self.

A gentle exploration of existence as a little girl, and the realization that one can learn to reparent themselves. The song begins with a felted piano and banjo sound, accompanying Laoise’s vocals as she sings reassurances and hope to her infant self.

Hailing from Dublin, Laoise is a musician of exceptional talent with a unique approach to blending lyric and piano compositions with textural electronic elements. From an early age she showed promising musical talent, beginning her studies in classical piano at age five. She went on to study music at Goldsmiths University of London. Here, Laoise began to challenge her classical training.

‘You Fall Like Snow’ is a personal and intimate song that balances childhood innocence with complicated arrangements and intuitive lyrics. Fans of artists such as Laura Marling and Kate Bush will appreciate this haunting, yet inspiring piece of work.

“I wrote this song after doing a visualization exercise in which I had to imagine caring for myself as an infant,” writes Laoise. “I was living very rurally at the time and became fascinated with the idea that I could learn to reparent myself. I set out with the intention to write myself a lullaby. I wanted it to be enjoyable to sing, simple and catchy. It became a self-soothing ritual to play it at the piano.”

The single is taken from the forthcoming EP How To Swallow Spiders, set for release on June 16th.

‘You Fall Like Snow’ is available on all major streaming platforms.
