Indie Folk-Quartet SnugHouse Announces New Single, IRIE
Local indie-folk quartet, SnugHouse, announce the release of their first radio single, "Irie." The song presents SnugHouse at their best, with a lively americana arrangement, rich harmonies, and poignant lyrics. "Irie" is available on Spotify, iTunes, and other digital streaming platforms.
Written by Alex Millan and arranged by Nikhil Dasgupta, "Irie" is a song for a changing world. The lyrics reflect on the time Alex spent nannying a colleague's daughter. "Leaving the city at the crack of dawn each morning cleared my head and shifted my perspective on life," says Alex about her experience. "I spent my days following the whims of a curious toddler. My insecurities and anxieties about the world quickly became superficial." The song rapidly became an audience favorite at shows, and the band is excited to share it with the broader public.
The single is a follow up to SnugHouse's debut, self-titled EP, available on Spotify and iTunes, at Bull Moose (151 Middle St., Portland, ME), and at shows. The EP is an honest reflection of their live performances: a set of five sparse arrangements, painted in a pallet of muted colors, that holds a respect for songwriting above all else.
