‘Sirens’ is the latest venture from newcomers BIG LOVE, who blend moody textures, driving rhythms and raucous guitar work. Their newest release is their third offering since 2021, and is arguably their most accomplished single yet. Carving up feelings of trauma, rage, and chaos, ‘Sirens’ shifts from introverted to explosive at the flick of a switch.
Lead artist Cian Ó Maonlaí spoke about the song, saying that
“Sirens is my first-hand depiction of a traumatic experience that happened to me in a chaotic period in my life. I was getting in a lot of trouble at the time and the event felt like the culmination of years of anger and frustration bottled into one night. The song is an attempt to describe the events of that night, its language and structure reflect how I felt at different times throughout. Moments of pure calm turn to rage and violence and then back again. For me the song is written in the form of a diary entry. Writing it all out in this way proved really cathartic and I believe it was necessary for me to get out like this.”
The track seems custom-built for a sent closer, and you’ll be able to catch this one live at Dublin’s Grand Social on the 29th of May.
