Hubert Murray releases new single Arrow
Hubert Murray is a Galway-born, Tullamore based musician. His Distorted-Folk sound evolved from being lost in a house of mix-tapes and stacks of old folk & blues records. He sifted through each one, de-composing their lyrics and melodies. Hubert’s songs feature lost loves, inner demons, compulsive liars & day-dreamers.
New single Arrow, was inspired by the Henry Wadsworth Longfellow’s poem The Arrow and a Song (Written in 1845). The recording was laid onto digital tape at The NutShed recording studio in Clara, Co. Offaly. It was mixed and produced by Joe Egan (Bressie, Jerry Fish, JigJam) and mastered by Aidan Cunningham (Blizzards, Apella, The Scratch). It features Hubert on guitar and vocals. The Artwork was created by Tullamore native Claire Guinan.
Of the song Murray has said “when you let a song loose into the world, you wonder where it will end up, who will listen to it and how it will be interpreted. There is a sense of mystery and fear with releasing new art into the world, much like an arrow shot aimlessly into the heavens”. The dream-like sounds of Arrow mixes influences of Crosby, Stills and Nash with Elliot Smith.
Arrow is released today, 25th November.
