Darce – Valhalla ft Eve Clague
New Portals – Chasing Shade
The prolific Belfast couple Ruth and Michael Aicken are back with new track ‘Chasing Shade’. They say: “it’s a song we wrote about that one person we all know who is just happy with their lives no matter what happens. We’re off busying ourselves, trying to make the world a better place or build a better or more fulfilling future for ourselves and some people are just happy to sit back, relax and enjoy the ride. This song is about how envious we are of those people and how we wish we could just get away from the compulsions that drive us.”
