Derry producer Ryan Vail returns after about a year with ‘Grow’, the title track of a new EP that’s released next month. It’s quite delicate and atmospheric, which might expected from the subject matter. Vail told the Fader: “’Grow’ is very personal. The track, and the Grow EP, was written about a friend that passed away suddenly. The project covers the various stages of his journey to death, from telling people he was dying, dealing with it himself, questioning God and finally understanding what was happening.” A heartrending track, Vail’s vocals sound at once choked and straight: “Promise me you’ll wait for me, promise me you’ll move on.” He’s joined by Katie Cosgrave to add another layer to the latter stages of a beautiful song. The Grow EP is released on Champion Sound Recordings on May 5.
