Reevah, the moniker for Derry-based artist Aoife Boyle, known for her singer-songwriter roots and acclaimed alt-pop sound, releases her latest single “Without You”. The track marks a new chapter and sound for Reevah, showcasing her ability to write reflective and meaningful lyrics while delivering an upbeat disco pop-tune
In her own words, Reevah describes “Without You” as a track about “losing & finding yourself”. While the song may initially come across as a breakup song, it dives deeper into questioning oneself, thoughts, and fears when entering a new phase of life. Through the lyrics, Reevah explores the themes of self-reflection, focusing on one’s capabilities, realizing strengths and resistance, and ultimately finding empowerment and hope. Reevah says “With this track I really wanted to write lyrics which were reflective of a stream of conscious thought. Including imagery and objects that people can relate to like a letter, a flower sitting on a window, a doomsday billboard. Everyday observations which can sometimes evoke questioning humanity and what it’s all about. A serious subject paired with an upbeat disco pop-tune is my specialty.”
“Without You” is a testament to Reevah’s ability to blend serious subjects with a fresh and catchy sound.
Reevah’s music has earned her international acclaim, including airplay and streaming support in Ireland, the UK, the USA, and beyond. She has been praised for her ability to express the frailties, confusions, and vulnerabilities that come with everyday experience. Her music offers hope to listeners going through similar experiences while promoting themes of self-determination and the power of women.
“Without You” follows Reevah’s previous release, “Call Me Up,” which showcased a vibrant rush of alt-pop melody, 80’s flavored throwbacks, and indie-rock live feel. As Reevah continues to evolve her sound and songwriting, she remains a collaborative project with key input from her live drummer Brian Doherty and producer Matt Weir. Together, they experimented to push the Reevah sound onwards from her previous EP, 2021’s ‘Begin, Again’.
The upcoming single “Without You” is set to be released under Bloom Records, a new imprint from Dublin’s Faction Records. Reevah’s partnership with the label, led by the multifaceted A&R, artist manager, and BBC Introducing presenter Aine Cronin-McCartney, promises to bring her sound to an even broader audience.
With the release of “Without You,” Reevah is excited to showcase her new sound and explore what Reevah is all about. The single will be available on all major streaming platforms from March 10th, 2023.
