Irish gem Maria Kelly tackles mental health head-on with her brooding new single…

" immersive experience, inbued with honesty and enthused with youthful exuberance. We love it." - Wonderland

"...she is able to conjure a swell of overwhelming feeling with little more than just her voice and the resonant constant of an accompanying guitar." - The Line of Best Fit

For Fans of... Daughter, Lucy Rose, Fenne Lily

Small Talk is an incredibly honest and vulnerable song that channels the dark, brooding musicality of the likes of Daughter effortlessly. It was written during a storm black out in Maria Kelly’s hometown. The song parallels the nature of a storm with feelings of social anxiety. Maria elaborates “I found it so difficult to make eye contact with anyone and I was painfully aware of myself. Halfway through the writing process, I decided to reach out to my Instagram following for inspiration. The amount of messages I received was overwhelming. It made me realise how effective it can be to actually ask about people’s experiences of these issues.”
