Soft, spangled emotions sung with an open and heavy 'Cocooning Heart’. A collection of expansive, melancholy, psychedelic folk balladry born from an inward exploration of mind and soul during the forced exile of a pandemic lockdown. There is no sense of electrifying invention here, merely a songwriter practicing catharsis by perfecting his craft. "I’m not trying to reinvent something necessarily, just write a good simple song that could’ve been written 40 years ago or in 40 years". Songs that co-exist seamlessly with Myles O’Reilly’s love for movie soundtracks and the minimal-ambient genre. There is a large dynamic range between Cocooning Hearts grinding windswept drones and angelic ethereal reverbs. Unrepeatable rhythms from abstract jazz brushes, acoustic guitar supported by grand string arrangements, winding harmonies and bird-song synth sounds among other subtle touches give this record a richness that unveils more with each listen. The kind of album you want to listen to on a rainy day, or at that dinner date with your prospective or long-term other half.
