Irish indie pop artist, Brí has released her fifth single ‘If I Wasn’t Scared’ today and with it is reaffirming her credentials as one of the most exciting artists around. With powerful yet fragile vocals over delicate instrumentation, Brí takes us on another magical journey into her melodic lamenting world.
About the song Brí says ”If I Wasn’t Scared’ assumes a man’s perspective of a relationship as he struggles to balance his feelings with a ‘tough guy’ image, particularly among ‘the boys’. It is a toxic masculinity tale that strips back cold layers of indifference and questions the fear that it uncovers.’ – Brí
‘The vocals on this track were recorded remotely from my home while my bandmate Aidan Mulloy’s electric guitar melodies carry the song and my producer Asta Kalapa surrounds it with his magic. The gifted Kaitlin Cullen-Verhauz who is also in my band, plays cello on this track and elevates it to another level. Every song that Kaitlin (of alt folk duo KC VIK) and Aidan play on, is a song I fall deeply in love with.’ – Brí’
Hailing from Offaly, Brí has previously released 4 singles, debut track, ‘Low Supply’, ‘Polite’, ‘Burying’ and ‘More Than’. From the success gained from these releases she sold-out her own Whelan’s headline show, received high praise from a multitude of blogs and radio and was selected to perform at Beatvyne’s Music X Tech Experience. While 2020 saw performances from Brí at the esteemed Whelan’s Ones to Watch, The Ruby Sessions, headliners in The Sound House, Spirit Store and festival line-up announcements such as Vantastival, 2021 sees Brí building momentum for her anticipated debut album ‘Hide’, which is due for release in October.
