Dublin-based singer, songwriter, producer, and multi-instrumentalist Dunluvly has released a new single, “Too Late.” The single is the first release off of his upcoming EP, “Plethora.”
The Ben Howard-esque tune blends indie rock with a dance-like beat, with Dunluvly’s fingerpicking style carrying throughout. The driving beat is created by rhythmic guitars, layered harmonies, and strings, as well as Dunluvly’s signature sonic textures created by his unique production style.
About the tune, Dunluvly says, “This track is one that I’ve always gone back to when I’m travelling or roadtripping. I wrote the first half of the song in Vancouver a few years ago, and finished it this past summer. To me, it captures the feeling of this summer, and was a soundtrack to escaping Dublin to go camping for weeks on and off. The song was written in between those trips. It has that nostalgic, roadtrip sound, and is about that feeling of excitement leading up to a journey.”
The song was written, recorded, and produced by Dunluvly in his home studio, and he also plays all the instruments on the track.
Dunluvly’s sound is rooted in psychedelic indie and traditional Irish music. His finger-style guitar and exploration of unorthodox sounds allow him to create a sonically rich experience, while showcasing strong songwriting throughout his work. His emotive vocals and skilful performance on a multitude of instruments create unique textures in his music.
