Anna Mieke Shares New Live Video by Myles O’Reilly

Irish songwriter and multi-instrumentalist Anna Mieke has teamed up with film-maker Myles O’Reilly (Arbutus Yarns) to create a captivating new live video for her debut album title track ‘Idle Mind’.

Anna Mieke says:

This performance of ‘Idle Mind’ was filmed in the docklands in north Dublin. Cranes were hovering above us like vultures, with yet another shiny office block or hotel on the horizon. The song expresses a frustration towards apathy, in the face of dramatically changing landscapes. Working with Myles was an obvious choice – we’ve worked together before and he’s a brilliant filmmaker. Our original plan was to shoot the performance inside, but Myles insisted on an outside shot in the dimming light.

Anna Mieke’s album ‘Idle Mind’, released last April, was warmly received: “It’s a strikingly confident collection of 10 songs, full of blue sky thinking and wide open horizons… A deliriously renewable energy source.” ★★★★ –Siobhán Long, The Irish Times

‘Idle Mind’ is not just a stunning debut record, nor is it just an amazing Irish record: it’s a record that proves Mieke to be one of the most promising artists on the Irish independent sphere and mature musician and songwriter whose work deserves to be heard far and wide.” – The Thin Air

Anna Mieke was recently awarded the Next Generation Bursary Award from the Arts Council of Ireland, and will be taking time to work on new material at an artist residency in Co. Kerry in early spring. She is currently planning a UK and Ireland tour in May and June 2020, with dates to be announced.

Closing out 2019, see Anna Mieke perform live at Canton Casey’s Mullingar November 29th, and Other Voices, Dingle, 30-31st November.
