Track Of The Day: Maria Kelly – ‘july’

Having played at festivals such as The Great Escape and Electric Picnic, as well as sharing stages with the likes of James Vincent McMorrow and Lisa Hannigan, Irish artist Maria Kelly released her latest EP notes to self at the end of last year.

Taken from the EP, new single ‘july’ looks inward, exploring the idea that we are ultimately in control of how we feel, and must take responsibility for what we choose to dwell on. Another truly beautiful offering from Kelly, it flows with her silky smooth, emotion strewn vocals and a delicate, spine-tingling musicality. Oozing a heartbreaking sense of vulnerability, it sparkles with a mystical grandeur, creating a simply mesmerising slice of alt-folk.
