Hi/Lo & the Tribes - 'Teens Don't Write Diaries Anymore
Míchéal McCay from art-pop outfit Foreign Owl has teamed up with Derry-based Tramp bandleader Siânna Lafferty, under the music driven collaborative umbrella ‘Hi/Lo & the Tribes’. Reservedly experimental by nature, their first release results in a song that fits the current mood of the world down to a tee.
Combining Siânna’s singer-songwriter talents with McCay’s production, the track, ‘Teens Don’t Write Diaries Anymore’ is an enchanting piece of acoustic intimacy meets chilled out lo-fi. Gradually building with a soft beat to Siânna’s stripped back guitar and vocals, into a truly calming performance from the two musical sparks.
McCay was inspired to bring Siânna’s home demo and gently uplift the melancholic performance into ab evenly balanced piece of meditative sound. The lo-fi production gives off an upbeat charm, creating a conversation with Siânna’s beautiful voice and lyrics.
Hi/Lo and The Tribes is shaping up to be a tasteful curation of collaborations, immediately providing a lovely tune fit for large amounts of replay value.
