Small Circles and Flora Maye Share Collaboration

Small Circles and Flora Maye have just released a collaboration entitled ‘Low’.

The track is a collaboration between Conor Harkin (Small Circles) and his partner Stacey Gilroy (Flora Maye). It was written and recorded in a small room in Killala, Co Mayo, with a very stripped down setup. A departure from Small Circles normal work, this release incorporates the beautiful vocals of Flora Maye and a vibrant topline melody on violin.

The single has been mixed by Sean Corcoran at Bikini Island Studios, Dublin, and mastered by Peter Montgomery. It is a very unique blend of instrumentation and beats, and displays another interesting direction traditional Irish music can be taken. Taking inspiration from Bonobo, Bicep and George Fitzgerald, the duo can’t help but also draw comparisons to Daithí’s fusion of electronic music and violin who is also modernising traditional Irish music.

Flora Maye’s ethereal vocals lend a sense of the mythical and folklore ambience to the track. The dichotomy between the traditional instruments and modern beats is beautifully merged into this avant-garde track.

To date Small Circles has performed in McGowans Bar Easkey, JJ Harlows Live Venue Roscommon and Crowbar Dublin, and hopes to return to the stage as soon as possible. Currently Small Circles is working on his debut album with the hopes of completing it before the end of 2020.

‘Low’ was released on October 29th across all streaming platforms and you can learn more on
