Following on from earlier single ‘Blue’, and the announcement they are set to play next year’s Great Escape festival, rising Galway four-piece NewDad now drop a brand new single.
‘I Don’t Recognise You’ is a dreamy groove, filling out four and a half minutes with a hazy ambience that serves as a taster of their forthcoming debut EP ‘Waves’, due out early next year.
“The song is about watching someone you love lose their way," they explain. "Sometimes, you can’t recognise them as the same person they were before. We recorded the song in September in Belfast with Chris Ryan, who had mixed our last four songs, so it was amazing to work so hands on with him. It was our first time in a studio together, because we had recorded everything ourselves before.
"It was so much fun in the studio and we were able to really experiment with a lot more production techniques that have evolved our sound in a great way.”
