“Gratefulness doesn’t just make you happy — it creates a positive feedback loop in your relationships. So express that gratitude to the people you care about,” says Rónán Ó Snodaigh. This powerful sentiment informs Tá Go Maith, a collection of new solo works created jointly with musician and film-maker, Myles O’Reilly.

Created during lockdown in a remote cottage in Co. Kildare, surrounded by a forest and lake, which sets the backdrop of the album’s inspiration and sounds. With a car full of instruments, the two long time friends took this rare opportunity of time and isolation to create a beautiful new album inspired by reflection and newly found connections with time, place, family, friends and gratitude.

Influenced by both artist’s musical backgrounds of traditional Irish music and electronic ambient textures, the pair have described their new album as soundtracking a gentle spirituality. O’Reilly has a talent for unearthing lush, organic sounds from his synthetic armoury so that the pair can develop a panorama of percussive guitars, zithers, strings, horns, spectral electronics and perfectly timed bodhran. The atmosphere is both inviting and startlingly vivid. Rónán’s lyrics and satin voice gently rip through the air like a soft breeze. Song after song has a powerful cumulative effect.
