Ailbhe Reddy takes a defiant stand on new single ‘Shame’

Luke Sharkey

Ailbhe Reddy has been having a phenomenal year.

The Dublin-based indie folkster has been moving from strength to strength, beginning with the release of the melodramatic pop ballad ‘Nothing To Doubt’, one of our favourite Irish releases of the year.

Following on from that, Reddy announced her biggest headline show to date, performing at Whelan’s on November 23rd.

Now, the artist has released ‘Shame’, her newest single. The track is the artist’s most up-tempo to date and features the highest production value too.

With R&B inspired programmed drums and lush vocal treatment, especially on the repeated chorus line, the track has plenty of radio appeal.

Thematically, Reddy tackles the stigma surrounding mental health, especially that of depression. The artist has stated that “Shame is the word that sums up so much of what holds people back and keeps people down. A pre-cursor for my own experience of struggling with depression and feeling afraid to talk about it.”

Tickets for Reddy’s Whelan’s gig on the 23rd of November are on sale now at €16.35 here.
