Irish born singer songwriter Martha Ffion has announced her debut album “Sunday Best” is to be released in early 2018 on Turnstile Music, and to celebrate the news has released a single from the track titled “We Make Do”
The lush melodic instrumentation of the song combined with detailed and uplifting lyrics create a beautiful snippet of a vision of everyday life realised through soft shakers, heavy piano melodies and relaxed acoustic guitars.
Along with this, the track feels like a breath of fresh air that’ll send your mind straight to the countryside, yet at the same times seems devoid of any specific time or place, and I think this is due to the relatable nature of the lyrics sang through such soft centered balladry so perfectly. The album was written entirely in Glasgow after moving away from a catholic upbringing in a small Irish town, making the track and (hopefully the album) feel ambitious and adventurous.
A March tour has already been announced, featuring popular venues such as Clwb Ifor Bach:
7th – Cardiff – D/s @ Clwb Ifor Bach
8th – London – Waiting Room
9th – Edinburgh – Sneaky Pete’s
10th – Glasgow – Mono
11th – Newcastle – Think Tank
