The hypnotising new single ‘I’m Here’ was released on the 29th May by experimental folk artist Sean J O’Neill via Lyricom Records. The sound is an alchemy of ethereal harmonies, rising synths and nature sound effects, creating a textured sound which takes listeners to an undiscovered realm. Sean J O’Neill draws inspiration from Sufjan Stevens and Brian Eno, and has attracted comparisons to Bon Iver, Sigur Ros and Fleet Foxes.
Discussing the release, Sean J O’Neill explains: “New single ‘I’m Here’ is a unique combination of folk, experimental and modern classical music, inviting the audience into uncharted sonic environments where the listener is rewarded with new textural discoveries upon every listen.”
‘I’m Here’ is the follow-up to single ‘I Know You Worry’, which accumulated over 15,000 plays. Sean has an notable performance repertoire, having played support slots for Matt Corby, Yo La Tengo and Jack Ladder, as well as appearing at festivals around the world, including Barn On The Farm and Perth International Arts Festival. The other-worldly ‘I’m Here’ makes this Australian artist one to watch.
