Faraway Martin to Release ‘Falling In Your Sleep’

Faraway Martin hails from the West of Ireland, via Doha, Qatar, where he remains until this summer. He spent the past three years performing throughout the Middle East, USA and Ireland. Venues he has graced the stage of include the QNCC Arena in Doha, supporting international artists. Faraway Martin is releasing his second single ‘Falling In Your Sleep’ on Friday Feb 1st. Award winning animator Marc Corrigan created the video, set for release on Feb 4th. Marc has worked with many acts including and Lil’ Kim, HamsandwicH, I’m From Barcelona and Dan The Automator.

Faraway Martin’s sound is heavily influenced by his Irish roots, with evidence of Damien Rice and U2, yet his music has taken a more in your face folk-pop direction. With honest lyrics and catchy hooks, he makes an immediate impression on listeners with his second single ‘Falling In Your Sleep’.

“My feet are cold and yours are too
Stick them between my thighs
so I’m perfectly tangled in you
We’re tangled in two”

The melodic, upbeat tune is the follow-up to the Qatar-based singer’s debut,‘Intoxicated’, and shows how adaptable the self-taught musician is. The track, recorded at Dogfox Studios, in Nashville, USA inspires feelings of affection as Faraway Martin lilts about ‘spooning’, hoping for love, and emotions that every listener can relate to. The track produced by Dave Skelton is reminiscent of offerings from The Chainsmokers and The Lumineers.

Since the release of his debut single ‘Intoxicated’ last October, Faraway Martin’s presence in the music scene has grown internationally. The Irishman has established himself as a live act in his adopted home, recently playing support to international pop sensation Bazzi and Boyce Avenue, of YouTube fame. He has opened shows for Mick Flannery, Hermitage Green, played main stage in Whelan’s with the Galway Street Club and filled the Roisin Dubh for his first headline gig. His upcoming tracks are honest tellings of love, emotional turmoil and coming of age. 2019 will see a US tour, many festival appearances as well as an eagerly anticipated debut EP release.
