Alice Kiernan announces her brand new single ‘Blue’, due for release Thursday 28th October across all major music platforms.
Speaking about the release Alice said: “I wrote ‘Blue’ in January 2021 in the midst of what was probably one of the most paralysing times in my life. It follows the feelings of sadness, dejection, and the determination to make it through to the other side – something we’ve all experienced throughout 2021”.
Alice is a 25-year-old singer songwriter and musician from Meath, based in Dublin. Following the release of her debut single, Running Now, ‘Blue’ is a further step for Alice into the pop world with influences from artists such as Troy Sivan, Maggie Rogers and Phoebe Bridgers.
Alice began singing and playing guitar at the age of 12 and by the age of 16 began her music career by gigging and performing in venues around Dublin and Ireland. She has supported some of Ireland and the UK’s biggest acts including Ham Sandwich, Paddy Casey and Matt Cardle in venues such as Whelan’s, The Academy, and Cyprus Avenue. Through gigging and posting covers and her own originals online, she soon gained a small following which created the foundation and gave her the confidence to start releasing music independently.
Taking a step back from her acoustic guitar, ‘Blue’ takes inspiration from various female pop artists such as Lorde, Florence, and Ellie Goulding. The song focuses on the desire to wipe yourself clean of any sadness and the feeling of urgency that comes with healing.
‘Blue’ is available on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music and all other music platforms from Thursday October 28th.
