TRACK REVIEW: Ceitidh Mac – Birds | NARC. | Reliably Informed | Music and Creative Arts News for Newcastle and the North East

Reliably informed

I noticed during the first lockdown that as the city slowed down, the birds were still belting it!” Notes Ceitidh Macleod, on the inspiration behind her fourth and by some distance finest single to date. “I think they always were…I just hadn’t been listening. It gave me a little lift, and I’m hoping this song is a nod to appreciating the small things around us.”

Casting her trademark cello and smoky vocal in a delightfully vivid rolling arrangement, Birds’ pacific folk mirrors nature’s resplendent allure with such fluidity its component parts seemingly coalesce into a serene, seamless whole. If – or indeed, when – Ceitidh Mac transcends her standing among the North East’s best-kept-secrets, there’s every chance this sublime stunner could prove a key milestone.
