To celebrate the release of her latest EP notes to self, Irish artist Maria Kelly hasnow shared the emotive new video for her single july. “The song takes a look at the behaviours that expect solutions from outside of myself,” Maria explains. “It’s about admitting that you have control over how you react to any situation and that by choosing to get stuck in the past, you’re only doing more damage to yourself in the long run. The video was brought to life by my friend Garth, starring my other talented friend, Dyl. I bought a shitty hand-cam and we filmed the whole thing over two days in Berlin. The DIY element made it a really gratifying experience, and I am incredibly proud of how it turned out – I hope you find something in it too.”

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.

notes to self was released 7th December 2018 via Veta Records.
