Irish artist Maria Kelly has released her refreshingly honest EP, notes to self,  out now via Veta Records. The EP is a heartbreakingly unassuming collection of songs diarising Maria’s move from Dublin to Berlin. It explores themes of leaving home and finding familiarity from within, even if that can sometimes be an uncomfortable thing to do. Maria’s latest single to be taken from the EP, august, celebrates her new found confidence and understanding that you need to let go of whatever holds you back. The track blends Maria’s velvet-like vocals with ethereal soundscapes and honest lyricism to create a sound akin to the likes of Daughter or Hazel English

Raised in the West of Ireland, nestled somewhere along the Atlantic Way, Maria spent many years developing her sound into a delicate blend of atmospheric-alt-folk. Maria has already played numerous shows in both the UK and Ireland performing alongside the likes of James Vincent McMorrow, Lisa Hannigan and Paul Noonan, as well as playing at last year’s Great Escape Festival, Electric Picnic, Ireland’s acclaimed Other Voices Festival and most recently the Imagining Ireland shows in the National Concert Hall and the Barbican. Maria has previously received praise from various online publications including Consequence of Sound, The 405, Wonderland, Mahogany, The Line of Best Fit and Radio X. june also featured on Spotify’s Fresh Folk and Your Coffee Break playlists respectively.
