Sive - "Quietly"
I've never truly been one for traditional Celtic music, but the latest single from Sive changes the format around just enough to make it interesting for me. Her latest single, "Quietly," will completely appeal to fans of NPR's Celtic music show. There is definitely enough of the Celtic folk tradition there. But Sive, aka Sadhbh O'Sullivan, mixes it up just enough. She brings in enough odd experimentation through jazz elements and some more classical, almost film score like instrumentation to keep the listener on their toes. Plus, "Quietly" continuously morphs throughout its four minute length. It could almost be multiple songs, but it does keep a certain thread during all the changes. "Quietly" is perfect for Celtic music die hards and anyone who loves unique music.
