Carol Anne McGowan – Liar for Love

I’ve been feeling pretty detached recently, uncomfortable and bored with modern life… I’m barely functioning. Having withdrawn to my bedroom in the hope I might find some sort of salvation, Irish folk singer Carol Anne McGowan was the best kind of discovery, the kind that fills my heart with warmth. Liar for Love is a haunting, hypnotising track that I almost didn’t share because I wanted to keep it to myself. Her voice feels reassuringly familiar, understated and timeless. It’s not the kind of music that demands the spotlight, but it sure deserves it.
