Super ltd edition 7" // Kerry Devine & Maija Sofia Posted 13 Dec 2017

'Flowers' / 'Vehicle'; Trapped Animal double a-side super ltd edition 7" ft Kerry Devine & Maija Sofia + Irish tour dates

We're chuffed to bits to announce a very special (super) limited edition 7" Vinyl split

The 7", features 'Flowers' by Irish singer Maija Sofia & 'Vehicle' by Kerry Devine.

Maija Sofia, recently appearing on the cover of the Irish Independent Review as one of Ireland’s young ‘future makers’, has been captivating listeners with her dark, fairytale, lyricism since the release of her first single ‘Cosmonaut.' An artist who Trapped Animal invited to perform at a number of their club nights in London last year, naturally as Trapped Animal has grown into a record label, they have looked to release Maija's music and are extremely excited to help release 'Flowers' to the world.

Maija says: "The lyrics of Flowers came to me on a four hour train journey through Wales after reading Angela Carter's 'The Bloody Chamber'. It's an intensely personal song about trauma and violence, ironically - it's also the most poppy song I've ever written. It was my first time recording with a full band, I wanted to disguise the darkness of the lyrics under a sort of Phil Spector girl-group style wall of sound."

Following on from spellbinding performances around the UK and at this year’s Cambridge Folk Festival and the final ever Secret Garden Party, Kerry Devine announces the release of the single 'Vehicle', taken from her forthcoming debut album 'Away From Mountains', releasing April 2018 on Trapped Animal

‘Away From Mountains’ is profoundly inspired by the Fenland landscape and the stillness and history that inhabit the ancient, wild fens in the East of England. ‘Work You’, the first single taken from ‘Away From Mountains’ was filmed at one of these dark and mystical locations - Woodwalton Fen.

Both Kerry and Maija will be appearing on bills together in Ireland this January with UK dates tba.

Thu 25 Jan: Galway (supporting Rosborough), Roisin Dubh

Fri 26 Jan: Dublin, Anseo

Sat 27 Jan: Cork, The Roundy
