‘Liberation’ is the new EP by Leixlip-born, Clare-based artist Enda Gallery, a record of stunning intensity, beauty, and potency.
It is a musical recollection of a journey undertaken by skilful songwriter.
Prior to releasing his debut album ‘The Journey to Zero’ in April 2020, Enda had collaborated with the likes of Kid Simius, Dead Rabbit, Nobody’s Face and written/produced for Tolü Makay, Wilzee and Strange Boy.
His history of producing and enabling these artists across many genres have gifted him the thoughtful capability to mix his skills, self-determination, and empathy with a mastery of his own presence inside of a song.
This combination results in his ‘Liberation’ EP, which is a truly sincere and compassionate collection of songs filled with vigour and lushness.
On ‘Old Fashioned’, we are treated to the euphoric essence of Berlin – rapturous, blissful, and emotionally delicate all in the same breath.
Enda Gallery sings over a pulsing clubland style piano loop “In the city of hoping, in the city of the fear/ In the city of floating, you make me want to be Old Fashioned”.
It’s a love song to everything Enda Gallery has found in his secondary home in the German capital.
Enda is an artist with a real purpose, and that is to create beautiful and liberating art. He takes influence from genre-defying artists such as Frank Ocean and Prince – mixed with the deep sincerity of Sufjan Stevens, Alicia Keys and even Freddie Mercury. Through this sense of creative deliverance, we hear his truest realisations and experiences with songs such as ‘Super Raw’ and ‘This Is That Moment’.
Marinated in flavours of soul, hip hop, techno, and gospel we are left with songs which peel back the layers of self-incrimination and personal disenfranchisement. The highly danceable title track ‘I Want Liberation’ is exemplary in showcasing Enda Gallery’s finesse for uplifting and gracious pop songs.
‘Liberation’, the new EP from Enda Gallery, is out now via Welcome to the New World.
