Moylan is back with her new single, ‘Winter’. What better way to begin a conversation, than talking about the weather. Moylan greets us gently in a space so familiar and comforting that we instantly feel at ease. Although we hear a solitary voice and guitar, there is a sense that she is not alone, which is confirmed with the refrain: “The distance has me thrown but I know I’m not alone.” Throughout the track, Moylan’s warm backing vocals creep over us like a liquid blanket ensuring our whole being is kept safe and warm. This delicately crafted track builds in momentum as the harmonious strings dance around the stripped back percussion, guitar and piano, all the while allowing Moylan’s distinct vocals and lyrics to remain the focal point. This song is a hand written letter exploring what it means to be home-sick, and how bitter-sweet it is to love.
