In internet, music and life terms, it’s been a long time since we heard from Miriam Ingram.

The Dublin artist released an album entitled Trampoline in 2006, and an accompanying remix album, the following year.

Always an artist who walked the line between acoustic and experimental strands, her newest release, the Spells EP is her first in 13 years, marks another album to come in 2021.

The four tracks on Spells, hold a Kate Bush experimentalist feel to it, taking flights of experimental fancy among its more natural elements.

‘Spells’ is a dream-like gaze at our ephemeral state within nature’s complex beauty and brutality. It’s about coming into being and dying. Words and melodies guide us through a psychedelic, visceral, textured maze of vocal loops and layered synths until we too become a tiny white dot. 

The entire EP was produced by Diolmhain Ingram-Roche aka Wastefellow, who is also Miriam’s son, who also plays synth, guitar and percussion. Also involved are:

Vocals: Carol Keogh and Seán Ingram Ó hÉigeartaigh, Bass: Colin J Morris, Sax: Oisín Murtagh. Recording Engineers: Colin J Morris and Diolmhain Ingram Roche. Produced and mixed by Diolmhain Ingram Roche. Mastering Engineer: Dunk Murphy. Photo by David Cleary.
