Watch: Robyn G Shiels – If I Were Thy Demon

There resides in all of us the capacity for profound pathos; fortunately for the listener, Robyn G Shiels‘ grasp upon his is frequently dragged up to surface-level, offered in only the way a harbinger of doom-folk could, and with ‘If I Were Thy Demon’, the result is a hauntingly introspective, melodic soliloquy. Simple, emotive and with a dark charm recurring throughout, the latest single from the 2014 NI Music Prize winner speaks volumes of the Kilrea native’s evolution as an artist.

Set to feature on Shiels’ forthcoming, as yet untitled EP, which is due for release in February 2017 via Solid Choice Industries, ‘If I Were Thy Demon’ is accompanied by a fitting animated video that does much in the way of cementing Shiels’ proclivity for atmospherics. Created in collaboration with Belfast musician and artist, Richard Davis, it completes a triptych of video the two have produced together.
