Premiere: Emma Lohan – ‘Three Sparrows’

Galway songwriter Emma Lohan has shared her latest single ‘Three Sparrows’ ahead of the release of her debut album Black Atlantic on 25th October. The track is a nod to her “lyrical hero” Shane MacGowan of the Pogues, and is accompanied by a beautiful stop-motion video directed by Marta Barcikowska.

Filled with double entendre, ‘Three Sparrows’ is “an escape encapsulating a dangerous love affair” along the stormy Salthill Promenade of Emma’s hometown in Galway. Emma’s fusion of folk and romance combine beautifully here, making ‘Three Sparrows’ a charming, gentle listen.

Emma will be playing a headline show to celebrate the release of Black Atlantic on October 25th at NT’s Bar in London Fields. She’ll also be playing a show on October 26th in Wales, at the Small World Puppet Theatre. Watch the wonderful video for ‘Three Sparrows’ below and follow Emma Lohan on Facebook for more updates.
