Irish folk singer Brigid Mae Power’s latest occupies a liminal space made up of droning guitars, metallic piano reverberations, and lyrics that trace some barely escaped threat. multi-instrumentalist singer-songwriter .Brigid Mae Power is coming to Asylum Studios and it is pretty special, intriguing delicate and very strong, her voice is Fluttery and steadfast.
Power is a nuanced vocalist. Her voice is agile and exhilarating, conveying all her nervous optimism and frank exhaustion, whether singing monastic drones (“Let Me Hold You Through This”), forlorn ballads (“Is It My Low or Yours”), or Carpenters-indebted melodies. She never comes close to elucidating what it is she escaped, but the aftermath leaves little doubt as to how serious it was. She reveals her coping mechanisms on “I Left Myself for a While,” but rediscovers everything she had locked deep in some internal safe on “Watching the Horses.” Backed by dreamy, subtly cinematic strings, she sings, “I thought I had completely forgotten/But it was in body’s memory/I release it now/I am free.”
