New Bedford's Molly O'Leary just released a new single that was written for their older brothers. "Echo" is a captivating folk-pop song that starts off quietly before sweeping the listener up in a wave of sound. O'Leary is almost whispering at some points in the song, which gives "Echo" a confessional feeling, almost like this is truly meant just for their siblings. The song reminds me of a cross between Mary Lou Lord's major label period and early The Cranberries. O'Leary's latest is the rare song that fixes folk, pop, and indie rock in equal measures and works perfectly.
Molly O'Leary says of their latest single:
You can listen to "Echo" below. Marigold is due out February 23, and is available for pre-order here. For more on Molly O'Leary, check out the artist's website. Upcoming lives dates are below the song.
