Irish up and coming neo-trad band Strings & Things are set to release their first track off their highly anticipated “Re: Works” EP
“Too Much To Ask” Speaks of longing for the sunny days, the distaste and bitterness towards the dull skies and rain from the heavens. Written in 2016, this is a track from their first original album, “Turbulence”, that Strings & Things felt deserved to be updated to their ever growing & evolving unique sound.
This song has a dark, mysterious undertone which develops throughout and opens up into a grand chorus. The mood throughout the song is carried by the dynamics and key changes between the verses & the choruses, with vocalist James O’ Meara taking us on this journey, singing along the lines of a great Irish conversation starter, our never ending dispute on the weather.
Band sound engineer & Bassist Eoin Salmon says “It’s interesting to be able to take the experience that we gained from recording “The Unsolicited Dance” (2021) and use it to give these songs a fresh lift”.
This is the first of 3 tracks that Strings & Things will be releasing from their new release, so keep up to date with everything on their Facebook page or Stringsandthings.band
