The latest tune from Irish singer-songwriter Ailbhe Reddy is another beautiful and beguiling song built on a flawless vocal, subtle hook, and clever, relatable lyrics.
The Tube is a strong folk/pop effort from Reddy, who explains: “The song is about having no explanation good enough for someone, so the only thing I had left to offer was the small gesture of walking them to the nearest tube station. It’s a song about struggling to express yourself properly to someone, which I think is probably pretty universal.”
Her autumn tour of the UK and Ireland comes to a close this week at The Canteen, Bristol (1 November) and London’s St Pancras Old Church (2). Details here.
