Ae Mak return with a new lineup and their first single since last year’s stellar ‘I Walk‘. Aoife McCann is the sole frontperson now, Ellie McMahon having departed. A four piece now, the Dublin group is completed by Daniel McIntyre, Dylan Povey, and Peter Kelly. “I finally understand you but I don’t want to, I see myself in you, a struggle inside,” reveals Aoife on ‘Glow’, as hums eventually escalate to a euphoric outro. Aoife told Earmilk:”I wrote ‘Glow’ after one of the irrational fits of irritation I sometimes get when arguing with those closest to me. It comes from recognising traits in others that I see and dislike in myself. So it’s about denial, self-acceptance and turning to the ones that you love to accept the good and bad parts of yourself again. I brought the song to Daniel in the band who created the soundscape and made it come alive. Through our shared musical vision and love of dance music, we created ‘Glow’.” [Picture above by Brid O’Donovan Facebook | Twitter | Instagram]
