Music | Review: “Rain Songs” by Brian Casey

Alternative songwriter Brian Casey is set to release his second EP “Rain Songs” on 20 November, which is penciled in before he goes on a short tour in Ireland. Listening to his new material, there are some stark influences that work surprisingly well.

Casey’s EP opens with ‘Believe’, a track that sounds soft and smooth, perfect for rainy days in bed.  The next track goes back to a solo style though, as ‘Times River’ opens, you would think it was a Nick Mulvey b-side.  ‘Funerals is a joyful and upbeat number, although the lyrics are bittersweet.

This EP certainly doesn’t lack a range of influences, fresh approach from Brain Casey, the live shows should be very interesting.
