James J. Clarke is a Meath songwriter best known for his work with The Ambience Affair and Divan, both projects which have featured here over the years.

For his debut solo single, Clarke has released ‘The Dark of Night’ , “a deeply personal meditation on family, grief, and change” which he wrote and recorded at home while living alone during the pandemic and dealing with the loss of a parent.

The song comes with a video by Ian Maleney, who also produced the song with James, and mixed and recorded the track.

Lyrics

When i’m by your side,
I ache to get away.
For there comes a time,
When it’s too much to take.

It is calling out, as light subsides.
It is calling out, the dark of night.

Memories fade,
And words are meaningless.
And I am afraid,
Of the feelings I’ve suppressed.

It is calling out, as light subsides.
It is calling out, the dark of night.
