Single Review: Sarah Connolly's 'Eye Of A Bird'
Eye Of A Bird is the debut single from Newcastle-based singer/songwriter Sarah Connolly.
This is the perfect song to put in your summer playlist, because it gives you the feeling of a warm relaxed evening.
It starts and ends with bird calls, there’s a gentle plodding piano and tapping of drums and the tempo flows like a gentle breeze, with the deep bass line giving the listener a pleasing warmth.
The vocals speak of emotional and physical memories of a love lost and, although they’re deeply personal, most people will relate to them all too well. They’re delivered beautifully by Sarah’s delicate voice, with just the right amount of lament and angst.
On the surface, you could say this is a melancholy song, but I think it’s more about escapism and ‘signing off’ on a past relationship.
Overall, this is an excellent debut single.
You should check it out, if not for all the above then for it’s peaceful calming influence and it's ability to make you feel brighter however bad your day has been.
