Manchester singer-songwriter Caoilfhionn (pronounced Keelin) Rose creates a mesmerising, ethereal air with 'Flourish', the first single from the forthcoming album 'Truly', out April 9 via Gondwana Records.
Co-produced with Kier Stewart of The Durutti Column, ‘Flourish’, is an intoxicating meditation on being present in the moment, and allowing peace to come to you. Rose’s beautifully restrained voice, both soothing and attention holding, glides over lightly plucked guitar and a subtle instrumental arrangement.
“The song is about looking forwards with hope and possibility, ‘let it flow away, let it turn around and flourish’. It’s about finding peace and feeling wonder again,” says Rose. “’Flourish’ hints at the ideas of what could be, how things can unfold if you let go ‘and just be here’.”
