Listen: Vogelbat – Ovl (feat. Sad Mermaid)

Brought to your ears via Berlin – and the Soundcloud embed below – the latest offering from Vogelbat (aka Kilkenny’s David Sheenan) confirms not only that the Irish producer is expanding his sonic repertoire, but is doing so with urgency and conviction. Certainly a step forward from ‘Banx’, a track which Vogelbat released back at the beginning of the year, ‘Ovl’ features Berlin’s Sad Mermaid and as a result propels Sheenan’s music from singular and idiosyncratic to bolder and enrapturing.

Described by Sheenan as “influenced by the likes of Portishead and Massive Attack” the track “aims for a lush sound without to much polish.” Success, we reckon.
