Lemonade Marinade are back with their third single during these uncertain times for the Irish mental health charity Pieta. Following on from their acclaimed singles ‘Good to See (That Some Things Still Shine So Bright)’ and ‘Venus and Me’, the Irish lockdown band release the joyous indie pop song ‘Brilliant’ on Friday November 6th, 2020.
All the songs relate lyrically to the chosen charity and relay a message of encouragement and hope, with the risk of suicide spiralling since covid (especially in young men). ‘Brilliant’ offers lyrically an alternative to the darkness they feel with love and a wonderful future within their grasp.
With this new single Lemonade Marinade hope in some small way to help raise funds and ensure Pieta can continue their vital work.
‘Brilliant’ was written by songwriter and producer David Dee Moore. Vocals on this track come from legendary Nashville singer and Co. Down based Cathryn Craig (Righteous Brothers, Chet Atkins)
The slick accompaniment comes from a band handpicked by David Dee Moore with years of musical experience and creativity. These include Nick Scott (Gilbert O’Sullivan, Mary Black) on bass,, Colin and Janet Henry (Nancy Griffiths, Charlie McGettigan) on dobro and vocals respectively, Fintan Hanley (Vickers Vimy) on mandolin, Brian McAteer (Phil Coulter, Alisdair Frazer) on strings, Brian Willoughby (Strawbs, Mary Hopkin) on nylon guitar and project producer, arranger David Dee Moore (Liam Clancy, Juliet Turner, Brian Kennedy) on guitars and keyboards.
