Irish (London based) multi-instrumentalist and singer Áine O’Dwyer released Anything Bright Or Startling? on the Second Language label back in June as part of their new Library Series which has also featured Colleen (The Weighing of the Heart). The follow-up to her 2011 Music for Church Cleaners features vocals for the first time. Áine who is best known for her collaborations with Mark Fry and The A. Lords, United Bible Studies, Piano Magic and Richard Moult has a voice that is perfectly matched to her lyrical harp playing as can be heard on the track Falcon below which was written by RWM Hunt, Scottish painter and leader of the band Shimmy Rivers and Canal.
