What you may need to know…
01. The breathy, considered voice of Cork alt-folk outfit The Hard Ground, Marlene Enright has struck out solo in recent times with a run of singles.
02. Having helped see the Hard Ground through a crowd-funded trilogy of EPs, Triptych, in 2014, Enright’s debut solo album, Placemats and Second Cuts, is due in March of next year.
03. Streaming above is the video for new single Alchemy, filmed and directed by Cork filmmaker Barra Vernon.
04. Catch her touring Ireland in support of indie-rocker gone solo John Blek. John Cleere’s in Kilkenny on the 19th, Coughlan’s in Cork on the 25th, Phil Grimes’ in Waterford on the 26th, on the Other Voices Music Trail in Dingle on December 2nd and 3rd, capped off with a show at Whelan’s on the evening of the 3rd.
Verdict: Taking that slight, yet mighty voice in its own direction is a good fit, as Enright relays her own experiences with the help of purposeful writing and arrangement.
