Irish singer/worker Naomi Hamilton AKA: Jealous of the Birds has shared “Ode To Fire.” The song was produced by Marta Salogni (Bjork, MIA).
Jealous of the Birds on “Ode To Fire:”
“‘Ode to Fire” was written during a solo trip I took to Lisbon, Portugal in the spring of last year. I’d burnt myself out and travelled there with the hope of clearing my head and recharging creatively. In the afternoons I explored the city by foot and then spent the evenings working on songs in a tiny apartment. While I was there I lived a pretty monastic existence — especially considering that I knew no one and couldn’t speak the language. The song expresses that despite how idyllic experiencing a new place and culture is, it can be difficult to fully relish in these things when one is geographically separated from one’s partner. Joy is often diluted when it’s not shared. ”
Unfortunately, a US tour supporting Group Love has been put on hold, “It’s definitely been disappointing having to postpone our U.S. tour dates with Grouplove, due to the coronavirus outbreak,” Hamilton said.. “We were stoked to play new cities and venues, but the health of the bands, crew and audiences will always be our first concern. In the meantime, I send heaps of love to everyone who may be struggling at this time, and strive to be a source of positive energy and compassion. Please reach out and let’s help each other.”
Jealous of the Birds has released two EP’s Wisdom Teeth in 2019 and The Moths Of What I Want Will Eat Me In My Sleep 2018. Both EP’s came out through Canvasback/Atlantic. Previous to the EP’s she released an album Parma Violets independently.
