Following on from his hugely successful debut single ‘Full Recovery’, which has amassed over 2.5 million streams thanks to being added to several thousand playlists and being supported on BBC Radio 2, Amazing Radio and several prominent Irish stations, Curtis Walsh returns with a poignant follow up single: ‘Perfect Rain’, and accompanying video which captures a coming-of-age romance grappling with the complexity of relationships and growing up.
The young singer/songwriter’s masterful live performances have steadily built him a strong and dedicated fanbase over the past 12 months, including an invitation to perform at Gold Dust and Sofar Sounds in London in October 2018 and several key support slots with acts such as LANY, Tom Walker, Omar Apollo and The Academic. ‘Perfect Rain’ was recorded and produced by Ross Dowling (James Vincent McMorrow & Talos) and Jorg Gradwohl.
‘Full Recovery’ was an impressive introduction to an artist who is equally adept at writing great pop hooks as he is at tackling topics that are seemingly beyond his years, and now ‘Perfect Rain’ gives us more than a glimpse of the huge potential that this young artist possesses and sets Curtis up to be the artist to watch in 2019.
On the track Curtis says; “‘Perfect Rain’ is a love song I wrote for someone who meant a lot to me at the time. A relationship came about almost by chance, and without me realising that it might turn out to be something really good. It wasn’t planned….just like on a sunny day, if someone asked you what you least wanted, you’d say “rain” but then when it came , it was refreshing and actually just what you needed . Like a Perfect Rain’.”
‘Perfect Rain’ is released on Paragon Records: Friday 2nd November
