Galway native Me Auld Flower releases single ‘Get Out Of California’ with an accompanying video on 24th July 2020.The single coincides with a limited edition CD release of album ‘The Vaults Of Consciousness’, available on Bandcamp.
Me Auld Flower wrote the song after coming home to Ireland from the US, having lived there on and off for a number of years.
“I’d met a lot of dodgy characters, got myself into some strange situations, and my life had begun to spiral a little bit,” he says.
“My relationship at the time had exploded spectacularly and I ended up holed up in a country house in Connemara for my own good with a stray cat I’d just met. Each of us minding the other.
I wrote the song on a long summer’s evening, sitting in the upstairs window looking out on the back garden and adjoining churchyard. The sun was setting, the trees were full of birdsong, and the cat, who usually turned tail whenever I picked up the guitar, sat quietly on the windowsill in a kind of unspoken solidarity.
It was a really productive and beautiful time in my life during which I wrote most of the album – a potent remedy to what had passed.“
‘Get Out Of California’ is released on 24th July across all digital platforms.
