Daithi reveals the title track from his forthcoming EP ‘Holiday Home’, an intense instrumental techno track inspired by late night driving on county roads in Ireland.
Daithi on ‘Holiday Home’: “I do a lot of driving late at night after playing shows, and driving home to Co. Clare feels very solitary. There’s something interesting about playing to a room full of people, and then suddenly being completely alone in the middle of nowhere, with only your thoughts and some tunes to keep you company.”
The track follows the theme of Daithi’s new EP, which utilizes self-recorded natural sounds and samples based in Irish culture.
“Every sample should have a back-story, every song should be personal. The main rhythm in this track is a recording of an 11 year old bodhran player who won the All Ireland fleadh in the 90s.”
Available on Spotify on 31st March.
