Kildare singer/songwriter Niamh Murray has quite the story. Having been the lead singer of country folk band Murmur, she moved onto indie rock band District Daze who played the likes of Electric Picnic and Vantastival. And now, as if her resume wasn’t impressive enough, she’s going solo under a new alias, NÍV.
“Moonlight” is a piano lead single which showcases Niamh’s distinct voice. A song that explores relationships and love, it contrasts and complements her two previous releases perfectly.
Speaking about the song, NÍV says, “I think that this song really depicts a constant
love. It is a story of love that doesn’t ever really go away, even if the relationship does.”
She cites acts such as Damien Rice, The Cranberries and Joni Mitchell as influences, with Irish traditional music also an inspiration.
