Eoin Glackin NEW SINGLE 'Fresh Air ' Out Now





Fresh Air is the brand new single from Dublin’s Eoin Glackin. (pronounced Owen) An artist Ed Sheeran once described as “Smashing it”. Eoin himself explains “I was inspired to push the remix further by Reckoning Song (One Day) by Asaf Avidan. He had a massive hit all over Europe a few years ago with the dance remix, when the original was an acoustic folky ballad”. Eoin himself explains “I was inspired to push the remix further by Reckoning Song (One Day) by Asaf Avidan. He had a massive hit all over Europe a few years ago with the dance remix, when the original was an acoustic folky ballad”.

Born and raised in Dublin, Eoin was a curious kid into music and sci-fi but being the youngest of 3 brothers he found himself following their lead.

Stylistically part classic country and part rock opera, drawing on varied influences like Johnny Cash and Meatloaf. The new album Fires of Innocence was both written and produced in stages over the course of a year, a new approach for Eoin.

“I’ve usually just booked a block of studio time, gone in and recorded and whatever was there when we ran out of studio time, was it. With Karl we would do a session, leave it, live with it, maybe rework something, come back and do it again if we needed to. It was all very natural and organic with no restrictions on time. When it felt right, it was right. There is a whole heap of new songs recorded that got left off this time around too”.

Although country music doesn’t seem a natural fit for a Dublin city kid, Eoin was reared on it. In fact one of Irish country music’s biggest sensations, Derek Ryan and himself have been close writing partners for years.

The rock sensibilities of some of Glackin’s earlier releases are still also very much evident, with driving guitars and anthemic choruses a staple of the album. Look no further than “Way About You” for a good old rock and roll sing-song .

The themes and stories of Fires of Innocence, have their place in the personal and the political. The correlation between the tumultuous political landscape of the west and the personal searching of a young man trying to find his place in his own world are undeniable. Songs like “High King Falls”, “Barabbas Walks Free” and “Fresh AF” are head on challenges to the societal structures we accept every day; Who are the good guys? Who are the bad? What happens when the lines between the hard left and hard right blur? What does it mean when everyone is “safe” but nobody has a choice?

Songs like “Wear It While You Can”, “Eva” and “Hold the Line” are the personal answers to these worries.
