Moylan is back with her new single, ‘It’s Alright’. A brave and real piece, it explores the human quest for meaning and self-discovery in the midst of a pause on the railway tracks of life. Her inner knowing meets her weary, grasping self, and with kind insistence, holds up a mirror of self-examination. The track offers the comforting solace of surrender to the present moment, a relinquishing of the pressure of ‘putting on a show’, and the opportunity to reconnect with her essence. There is no destination, you are what you are searching for, ‘you’re gonna be who you are’. Long after listening you are left with the repetitive lyrics, like a comforting mantra: “It’s alright. It’s alright. It’s alright”. In these strange days, I say how bad is that?
Moylan’s breathy and intricate vocals, in alternatively sweet and harsh tones, lift us up from solitary forlornness to ethereal heavenly heights and deliver us back down to a somewhat changed solitariness of oneness. This new release reflects her evolving style, a magic merger of lilting Irish and urban Berlin.
