Niamh Regan Releases New EP ‘In The Meantime’

March 23, 2022

Niamh Regan is a critically acclaimed songwriter from county Galway. Following her studies at UL, Regan honed her craft as a songwriter by travelling between Ireland and California, writing about her experiences along the way. As a result, her songs seamlessly weave the intimacy of the Irish lyrical tradition with the expansive breadth of American songwriters such as Karen Dalton, Stevie Nicks, and Joni Mitchell, but the resulting sound is entirely her own.

Her debut album ‘Hemet’ announced her arrival as one of the most distinctive songwriters in Ireland today. Earning nominations for both the RTE Folk Awards and the Choice Awards ‘Album of the Year’, the LP received soaring praise which led to performances on The Late Late Show, Other Voices, and La Blogothèque.

Niamh now returns with a new EP, ‘In the Meantime’, joined again by Alex Borwick on production.

‘In the Meantime’ was written while confined in the rural village Kilrickle in east Galway during the pandemic. Showcasing the very best of her intimate storytelling and remarkable knack for melody, Niamh describes the new EP as “exploring themes of acceptance, uncertainty, independence, family guilt, silence and ordinary acts of love.”

Opening with a brand-new song ‘Late Nights’ a tender, brooding song Niamh describes as being about “navigating family guilt, growing up and leaving behind little bits of yourself as you enter a new chapter of thinking”, she singsIm constantly trying to make you feel better” over Borwick’s gentle, shimmering production.

Niamh shares a film for ‘Late Nights’, directed by Laura Sheeran, with choreography and dance performed by Robyn Byrne.

The film was captured at The Grand Social, one of Dublin’s landmark live music venues.

Niamh’s In the Meantime EP is a perfect encapsulation of the everyday, in which Niamh’s singular songwriting draws us into the intricate details and moments of her life, and elevates them into something universal.
