Our favourite post-punk poet and Limerick artist Sinead O'Brien is back with new music, this time sharing her enthralling track 'Fall With Me', released via Chess Club. The track was produced by legendary producer and 'UK Producer of the Year', Speedy Wunderground's own Dan Carey. 

According to Sinead, 'Fall With Me' is an invitation to surrender. "What would it be like to stand still in slow motion? To sink, even if just for a moment - to give yourself over to the pleasure of surrender."

On the single, she also notes, "The motif of a ‘head carousel’ rolls through the piece. I saw an image in a library which had all of these giant heads on a rotating wheel. It was such a statement, like a modern day counter response to the classical imagery of the scales, balance, zen. This image of ‘the self’; going around and around in a trap says so much about “now” actually. How to manage the wheel, gathering momentum while maintaining its equilibrium. How long can the head hold."
