I am hoping this song can spread some healing to people who are in pain. To help them feel a little better. To be reminded that they are not alone.

Among The Living, Marketa’s second single following the summer solstice release of Quintessence, is available now via all streaming platforms.

 
May this song be a vessel to you and carry you on its wings. Lay down, close your eyes, listen, and give yourself permission to let go and lift off.

Quintessence is available now through Marketa’s Bandcamp & via other streaming platforms here. Please find more about the song here and enjoy.

“The Leading Bird” Video Premiere

We’re so pleased to share this new video for The Leading Bird from the upcoming record MUNA. It features dancer Maria Alejandra Jara De Marco and was made in Iceland by our friends at Refur Creative, Hörður Sveinsson, Helgi Jóhannsson and Atli Viðar. It premiered at Spin.com earlier today.

“I am inspired by the open space, the wilderness of the nature, the strong energy coming from the land,” Irglová said of Iceland’s influence on her new music. “There is a harmony, a balance, something that allows for a freer flow of creativity. It is easier to be one with oneself and one with everything and everyone around.”

My Friend Mary

My Friend Mary

I met Mary many years ago, when I was still living in Ireland. I came over to Glen’s place for a cuppa tea one day and there she was in his garden, helping him to plant some onions. I fell in love with Mary straight away. Her hands and shoes were covered in mud, and her chestnut hair was held up with pins in the most beautifully wild way. Her woolen swather was well worn and it’s threads intertwined with strands of dried grass, revealing how common spending time in a garden was for her. She contained within her the earthiness of her people which I loved and enjoyed during my time living in Ireland. [Read More]
