Dublin indie-folk band Blue Fish Diamond are set to release their new single Free on April 28th.
Formed in 2016 by Jim Murphy, Blue Fish Diamond released their debut album From Dark to Light in 2018 with the band most recently releasing their soothing single Sunshine In My Brain in 2020. Described by Hot Press Magazine as “essential listening for those who like their music powerful and heartfelt.” The 7-piece indie-folk band has yet again created a stunning blend of blues folk and rock.
Speaking about the song Jim Murphy “This last year has been a very challenging time for all of us. Thankfully, there is hope on the horizon with the roll-out of vaccines, but we are still some months away from enjoying the freedoms of what was once everyday life. Our song Free looks forward to that time when we can embrace ‘sweet life once again.”
Blending together their influences of Neil Diamond, Tom Petty, and R.E.M, the latest release from the indie-folk group finds them producing a sound that is distinctly theirs. Swathed in layers of airy positivity, rich warm guitars, and light percussion, that twists around a sunny dreamy melody. Free has a soothing upbeat tone with a dynamic arrangement that gets the listener caught up in the song’s melody. The lyrics and the music work brilliantly together with Blue Fish Diamond, completely capturing the weariness and longing for a return to normality.
Written and played with skill, passion, and bunches of hope, Free is an intensely enjoyable listening experience that beckons repeated listens.
