Irish singer and songwriter Adrian Crowley is known for his often detailed but surreal storytelling, and for his rich baritone voice. Crowley says that his latest batch of songs “straddle the conscious and subconscious world and some are even psychedelic in my mind, but to me they are all at once true stories and born of another place.” Produced by John Parish (Aldous Harding, PJ Harvey) and featuring members of Portishead and Crash Ensemble, these tunes were initially composed on a “charity shop ¾ size nylon string guitar” or Mellotron (Bandcamp). Crowley plays songs from his latest album, The Watchful Eye Of The Stars remotely from Dublin and dances around Sprechstimme (speak-singing), water and ships, and isolation – whether chosen or imposed upon a person.
